The UK National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory (NAEI) is developed and maintained by Ricardo Energy & Environment, in collaboration with Aether, CEH, and Gluckman Consulting and is funded by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs.
This Inventory team is directly responsible for producing the emissions estimates for Energy, Industrial Processes and other Product Use, and Waste. The NAEI team is also responsible for inventory planning, data collection, QA/QC and inventory management and archiving.
Emissions from the agricultural sector are provided by Defra’s Farming and Food Science Team via a contract with Rothamsted Research.
Land-Use, Land-Use Change and Forestry emissions are calculated by the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH), under separate contract to CESA.
