Abstract

Spatial inventory of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions allows to identify emission changes in space. In this study we have analyzed the specificity of territorial distribution of GHG emission sources for Poland and Ukraine. Mathematical models and geoinformation technology for spatial analysis of GHG emissions from fuel consumption by power and combined heat and power plants have been improved by taking into account uncertainty of input parameters and specific factors for every separate electricity/heat generating companies. We have updated the input digital maps of emission point sources. Based on it, we have developed a spatial GHG emission distribution for 2012. The uncertainties of GHG emissions in CO2-equivalent for the power plants which we consider in our study are asymmetric and the upper bounds of 95% confidence intervals do not exceed 20,3%.
