Russia is a substantial emitter of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The energy sector is responsible for the major part of this emission. Official National Communications of Russia seem to present incomplete and out of date estimates of energy-related GHG emissions. The objective of this work is to present alternative assessments of the emissions of the Kyoto GHGs from the energy sector of Russia in 1990-2000 challenging the official estimates. The work focuses on inventory of emissions of multiple GHGs from combustion of fuels using IPCC methodology and estimation of CO2 emissions from regions of the Russian Federation in 1990 and 1997.

This report also gives an overview of GHG emissions in Russia and a comparison of the results from various studies in these fields.
