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.
