Last updated on 29 Aug 2019 09:29 (cf. Authors)

Energy and heat generation constitute the most important sources of emissions in Germany. This holds true for almost every pollutant (a prominent exception of this rule being ammonia, mainly from agriculture). Consequently, this section will look into the sub-sectors making up the NFR 1 - Energy sector with great detail. For overview information on key activity statistics and the basis for fuel based estimates please refer to the Methods and Data Sources section.

NFR 1 consists of the following sub-categories:

NFR-Code Name of category
1.A Fuel Combustion Activities
1.A.1 Energy Industries
1.A.2 Fuel Combustion Activities in Industries and Construction
1.A.3 Transport
