US light goods transport IPCC

[edit / update model]
This category is deprecated. The IPCC methodologies for US light goods transport can be found here and here

This category contains data associated with light goods transport in the US, sourced from the IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories.

The data is organised in to fuel types ('conventional', 'alternative'), with emissions estimates for CO2 and CO2e (i.e. CO2, CH4 and N2O) available.

It should be noted that the US-specific categories are similar to those within the /transport/lgv/generic/ghgp/lightgoods subcategories, in that both are ultimately derived from the same EPA dataset. However, the IPCC data and methodology are organised according to vehicular emissions control technology rather than vehicle age (although these are directly related) and include emissions associated with vehicle 'cold starts' as well as distance travelled.
