Baseline Emission Inventory (BEI)

When to carry out a Monitoring Emission Inventory (MEI)?

In order to monitor the energy consumption and CO2 emissions data effectively and adapt the Action Plan accordingly if necessary, Covenant signatories are encouraged to compile Monitoring Emission Inventories on a regular basis. Our recommendation is to do this on a yearly basis, and the minimal requirement in the context of the Covenant of Mayors is to do it at least every 4 years. In this way, subsequent inventories may be compared with the Baseline Emission Inventory, and progress with energy savings, renewable energy production and CO2 emission reduction measures adopted can be monitored.

For more information, please see the Quick reference guide on Monitoring and the FAQ: What should the monitoring report include and when should it be submitted?
