GID team releases the research report “Carbon Emissions and Commitments of Global Energy Infrastructure 2021” (in Chinese)
GID team releases the research report “Carbon Emissions and Commitments of Global Energy Infrastructure 2021” (in Chinese).
The Global Energy Infrastructure Emissions Database (GID) is released online! It aims to provide high-resolution carbon dioxide and air pollutant emission products of global infrastructure. Carbon dioxide emissions of power, cement and iron and steel sectors in 2019 are released covering plant- to global level data.
This research first comprehensively assessed the committed CO2 emissions of existing and proposed energy infrastructure, and underscored that committed emissions from existing energy infrastructure jeopardize 1.5°C climate target.
GID team reveals policies targeting ‘super-polluting’ units could substantially reduce pollutant emissions
This study builds the first global unit-level thermal power air pollutant emission database, and points out that policies targeting a relatively small number of ‘super-polluting’ units could substantially reduce air pollutant emissions.
