1 Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Minnesota: Peter Ciborowski Anne Claflin June 2009

2 Legislative Request   The Next Generation Energy Act established the following GHG reduction goals:   15 % reduction from 2005 levels by 2015;   30 % reduction by 2025; and   80 % reduction by   The MPCA is obligated to report on statewide progress toward these GHG reduction goals.   Annual legislative proposal   Biennial Reduction Progress Report   The request included some specifications, such as estimating electricity imported to service Minnesota demand and separate tracking of emissions or sequestration associated with biomass (Minn. Stat. § 216H)

3 Progress Towards Goal

4 Emissions by Sector

5

6 Emissions by Activity

7 Rules  Principles:   the long record of emissions covering periods of years to decades;   a consistent time series of estimates;   best international and US practices;   high level of data disaggregation; and   timeliness.  Geographical boundaries, except:  net electricity imports  aviation  Recalculation of previous and baseline year estimates as methods change  Limitations in protocols and available data  Downstream (combustion of fossil fuels and other noncombustion emissions)  Direct (physically occur at a facility)  Separately track biogenic emissions and sequestration

8 Emissions from Electric Power Generation

9 Emissions from Transportation

14 Next Steps   Planned improvements for the next biennial report, covering , include:   an improved HFC/PFC inventory based on the full implementation of the mandatory high GWP reporting rule;   new fuel use and feedstock reporting requirements for in-state petroleum refineries;   greater disaggregation of state-level energy use data to the end-use level;   a new stock model for monthly estimation of livestock populations on farms and feedlots;   development of an emission forecasting capability.
