Bulgarian Executive Environmental Agency: Inventory of the national GHG emissions for 2009

In 2010, experts from the Secretariat of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) carried out an inspection of Bulgaria's National Inventory System for greenhouse gases.

Context

In 2010, experts from the Secretariat of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) carried out an inspection of Bulgaria’s National Inventory System for greenhouse gases. After the inspection, UNFCCC revoked the accreditation for emission trading. The experts found that Bulgaria’s annual submission was not sufficiently transparent, consistent, comparable, complete and accurate.

The challenge

denkstatt was hired to improve the inventory. For less than two months our team had to achieve what was not done for the last ten years – to create a quality and transparent model for calculating emissions and this without any assistance from the team that prepared the previous inventories.

Our work

denkstatt prepared the calculations for the Energy sector (responsible for about 70% of total national emissions) from the National Inventory of GHG emissions for the period 1988-2009. A completely new set of fully transparent calculation procedures was provided.

Benefits

Bulgaria has got back its accreditation to participate in the European Emission Trading Scheme. The national GHG inventory was rebuild in a way, providing external auditors and new agency employees with transparent and clear view on the inventory compilation, aggregation and calculation.

Follow-up

denkstatt has been preparing the national GHG inventory for the Energy sector ever since.
