Explanations and Imprint of the Map
  1. Map 08.03 gives the total CO2 emissions of all recorded polluters. This map is sector and use related. The reference to the effective floor space of buildings gives additional pointers for the intensity of energy processes relevant for CO2.
  2. All emissions were allocated to the location of origin. The only exceptions are emissions from production of electricity and district heating. They were classified spatially according to consumption (cf. Maps 08.04.2 and 08.03.2).
  3. There is no precise all-Berlin block information for the total building area. Total floor space could only be approximately calculated by using built-up areas and the number of storeys in individual area types. No information exists for a number of built-up areas. The determination of block-related electricity consumption was mainly made from aggregated customer data of the BEWAG for 1995.
  4. Map areas not presented in color include areas where no CO2 is emitted, as well as uses for which no or only partial information exists regarding emission amounts. These uses include passenger and freight waterways, and railway areas. Individual locations like excursion restaurants, forestry facilities, etc., are also not completely registered.
  5. All CO2 emissions were depicted according to the block areas defined in the EIS Environmental Information System. The CO2 emitting facilities of large areas in particular, such as airports, actually use only a small part of the depicted areas.
