Domestic CO2 emissions fell by 15.6% from
73,903 tonnes in 2005 to 65,482 tonnes in 2009
despite an increase in the number of households.
Domestic CO2 emissions per meter for the average
dual fuel home fell 6,070 kg (6.07 tonnes) in 2005 to 5,131 kg
(5.13 tonnes) in 2009.
Domestic sector – 24 million tonnes CO2
Total domestic CO2 emissions in 2009 = 65,482 tonnes
CO2 emissions from electricity = 30,265 tonnes
CO2 emissions from gas = 35,217 tonnes
UK target is 28.7% reduction of non-traded emissions
Non-traded = emissions from burning fossil fuels
UK target applied to Belper = 28.7% of 35,217 = 10,072 tonnes
