SourceSource DescriptionWebsiteRemarksCO2 Scorecard Notes
1.1CDIACU.S. Department of Energy - Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Centerhttp://cdiac.ornl.gov/trends/emis/meth_reg.html CO2 emissions by fuel type plus gas flaring and cement production for all countries from 1751 to 2006 plus extrapolations for 2007-08 for the top 64 emitters of CO2This dataset would be updated when the final estimates for 2007-2008 are released.
1.2IEAInternational Energy Agency, a Collaboration of 28 (Primarily OECD) Nations www.iea.orgData for all countries on energy balances, energy consumption and fuel supply by type. Also energy prices and taxesThis dataset would be updated several times a year as when new data are released.
1.3EIAEnergy Information Agency USAhttp://www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/international/EIA provides the most extensive downloadable datasets on CO2 emissions and energy useCO2 Scorecard has incorporated the key indicators of CO2 emissions and energy use with time series typically starting from 1980 to 2007/08.
1.4UNFCCCUnited Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change www.unfccc.intGHG national inventories for 41 Annex I Parties (includes EU15/27, US and Russia, ex China and India) for 1990-2007This dataset would be incorporated in the upcoming update in the next month or two.
1.5BPBP Statistical Review of World Energyhttp://www.bp.com/statisticalreviewHas data on only 64 countries and various regional aggregates for energy production and consumptionThe current database includes the data on CO2 emissions; other indicators are under review. The small sample of countries in this database is a limiting factor.
1.6WB-WDIThe World Bank – World Development Indicatorshttp://data.worldbank.org/Data for 227 countries for 54 indicators for 1960-2008 for public, 550 indicators by subscription. Most data is derived elsewhere.CO2 emissions and energy use data go up to 2005/2006 only. [As of April 2010, World Bank's entire database is available for free]
