Stakeholder Workshop on Natural Gas in the Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks
On September 13-14, EPA held a stakeholder workshop on key aspects of the estimates of greenhouse gas emissions from the natural gas sector in the Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks (Inventory). EPA develops the Inventory each year to provide a comprehensive accounting of total greenhouse gas emissions for all man-made sources in the United States, and to track the national trend in emissions and removals since 1990. The Inventory is submitted to the United Nations in accordance with the Framework Convention on Climate Change. For more information, please see http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/ghgemissions/usinventoryreport.html.
At the workshop, EPA presented information on existing emissions methodologies and data and also presented options under consideration for updates to the Inventory, based on previous stakeholder comments on the Inventory estimates. In addition, stakeholders presented information on new and upcoming data and analyses related to these estimates.
