…-wide outputs, seen below. 17 Baseline Emissions: Sources and Targets Our analysis shows that annual territorial emissions peaked in Edinburgh at 4.23MtCO2e in 2001. Largely as a result of decarbonisation of the electricity grid, improving vehicle efficiencies and reduced energy use in homes and offices, this baseline has declined by 40.3% in the period between 2001 and 2019 where…

… networks, using local and national data to project how these might change in the future. Second, a long list of the possible actions to reduce energy use and carbon emissions in the domestic, commercial, industrial, and transport sectors is refined for the local context; during this process some actions that are not locally relevant are removed 1…

… impacts of actions are assessed individually using local costs and potential rates of deployment. Finally, actions are combined into scenarios to understand the extent to which the city as a whole can reduce energy use and carbon emissions. These scenarios take into consideration the complex interactions between measures, and between sectors. Three scenarios are then developed. The ‘Cost…

… by ‘stretch options’ - innovative new sectoral technologies, processes and efficiencies that are presently unavailable (or unreliable) to model here. These results represent ambitious and internationally significant levels of investment into low-carbon and energy efficiency measures at city level, spanning several hundred separate interventions evaluated at similarly ambitious levels…

…. In respect to the high capital, land and infrastructural investments linked to property, the domestic modelling here has been evaluated with ‘phasing’ programmes of interventions across stock that roll-out portfolios of energy efficiency measures realistically and in respect to Edinburgh’s housing and population projections; this phasing delays the absolute annual emissions reductions…
