BC Community Energy Emissions Inventory (CEEI) Decomposition Analysis: A Methodological Exploration

Robert Newell
Meeting the Climate Change Challenge


Decomposition analysis can be used to breakdown and examine factors that influence changes in GHG emissions over a given period of time. This report describes preliminary work that explores ways of applying decomposition methodology to CEEI data, collected for the years 2007, 2010 and 2012. The report primarily concerns methodology, and it focuses on the insights gained from developing decomposition approaches for and applying analyses to community level data.
