Summary Australia's National Greenhouse Gas Inventory (NGGI) reports greenhouse gas emissions and sinks according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) sectors: energy, industrial processes, solvents, agriculture, land use change and forestry, and waste. This structure simplifies emissions estimation and ensures consistency between the emissions reporting of the various signatories to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. However, the IPCC structure was not developed for the purpose of enabling emissions to be directly linked with economic activities. Hence emissions from electricity generation, the largest component of the NGGI, are attributed to the power generation subsector and not to the mining, manufacturing, commercial or residential end use sectors which consume the electricity. In order to understand the significance of different end use sectors of our economy and to assist in the development and tracking of greenhouse gas reduction measures, the Australian Greenhouse Office commissioned an end use allocation analysis of the 1990, 1995 and 1999 National Greenhouse Gas Inventories
