The CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion database contains annual CO2 emissions from fuel combustion and related indicators for more than 140 countries plus regional aggregates. Emissions were calculated using IEA energy databases and the default methods and emission factors given in the 2006 GLs for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories. This edition includes annual data for 185 countries/regions, generally from 1960 (OECD) and from 1971 (Non-OECD), unless specified differently at the country level.
