EMISSIONS FORECASTING METHODOLOGIES

A methodology for forecasting emissions for any future year is described. Techniques and specific emission factors for 1975, 1985, and 1995 are given for both mobile and stationary sources. Motor vehicle emissions are based on the CVS-2 test cycle and a data base specific for California. A discussion of current and developing approaches and driving cycles used to quantify motor vehicle emissions is presented including a discussion of speed adjustment factors. Stationary sources are divided into power plants and other stationary sources; power plant emissions are based on projections of electrical energy generation and other stationary source emissions are based on normalized projections of total earnings by source category (e.g. petroleum refining, mineral extraction). The base year for stationary source emissions is 1972.
