Description

WG21 Request: Define a market product for Carbon emissions


Proposed Solution

Add a new market product type to the enumeration MarketProductType:
CO2
Should be named properly?
  • CarbonDioxide
  • Carbon
  • Emissions
  • Green House Gas
  • CO2e (CO2eq, CO2-eq, CO2-e) (CO2 equivalent)
    Talk through with WG16 EU team for global name.

Decision

Carbon Emissions : Possibly abbr CEM;
CO2; confirm use cases for both EU, WG21 and NA
Most discussion is necessary

12/16/2021: Possible proposal could be: Carbon dioxide equivalent or CO2e (number of metric tons of CO2 emissions with the same global warming potential as one metric tone of another greenhouse gas, and is calculated using Equation A-1 in 40 CFR Part 98.)
Need to understand the use case - for how/what will be done with the market product that is representing the carbon emissions.

Look possibly into EPA.

2/24/2022: Team agreed to use CO2e. Need a description. (https://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/statistics-explained/index.php?title=Glossary:Carbon_dioxide_equivalent)
