The European Green Deal, the Methane Pledge based on the United Nations Climate Change Conference in November 2021, the German Climate Protection Act, and other national and international efforts intend to reduce global methane emissions. Against this background, it is necessary to reflect the efforts of industry and politics in the national inventories. Extensive measurement programs of transmission system gas operators, distribution system operators, and other institutions have been carried out since 2019.
Results obtained have been included in the German inventory and are explained in this report.
The publication is intended as a companion report to Germany's annually updated national inventory report.
