These statistics will be based on the energy statistics in BEIS’s quarterly Energy Trends publications, and will enable trends in UK emissions to be monitored on a more regular basis. Each release will report on emissions in the most recent four quarters, and will include a weather-corrected series alongside the actual emissions series.
Following a user consultation, the quarterly greenhouse gas emissions statistics published on 29 September for Q2 2016 will be the final release of these statistics. However, a quarterly time series will be included within the annual provisional emissions statistics publication, the next edition of which will be released in March 2017 for 2016.
