Call Notes

Meeting 1: November 20, 2023

Agenda with Notes

  • Introductions
  • Timeline Goals
    • Have final review/decisions for 2020 to 2022 recommended projection methods by end of December or early January
    • Focus on analytical years from 2022 on afterwards in the beginning of 2024
  • Discuss the Summary of Proposed Emission Projection Methods by Source Category table (see 'Table of Documents' at bottom of page)
  • Discuss timeline for next meeting
    • Next meeting will occur before the end of the year after the Work Group's overall meeting on 7 December 2023
    • We will discuss comments on the Summary of Proposed Emission Projection Methods in the next meeting

Action Items

  • Go through the Proposed Emission Projection Methods table and do the following in a copy of your own in Yellow:
    • Rank the source categories by priority with 1 being the highest and 3 being the lowest
    • Comment "Yes" to source categories you believe have potentially significant COVID impacts - or remove any existing "Yes" identifier if there's no potentially significant impacts
    • Provide comments on recommended methods/data to develop the 2022 emissions and any additional input on the above entries
  • For reference, the summaries of the methods used to adjust historical years reflect the following previous modeling platforms:
    • 2016v1 – methods that were generally used to grow 2014 emissions to 2016 (see column H)
    • 2016v3 – methods that were generally used to back-cast 2017 emissions to 2016 (see columns I thru K)
    • 2019 – methods that were generally used to grow 2017 emissions to 2019 (see columns M thru O)

Meeting 2: December 07, 2023

Agenda with Notes
  • Recap of previous meeting
    • Brief explanation of fields for methods, prioritization, COVID implications, and comments
  • Discuss comments made on the categorization/methodology of Sectors and their Source Categories
    • We reviewed which source categories should be prioritized, may have substantial COVID impacts, and how the group should approach each projection method
  • Next meeting info
    • A meeting will be scheduled for 22 January 2024

Action Items

  • Continue looking through the emissions projection methods and send comments if any arise
    • Co-chairs will consolidate and summarize comments and the discussion in a file of Proposed Projections for the task force (see 'Table of Documents' at bottom of page)

Action Items

  • Review the final draft of the 2020-2022 Nonpoint Projection Methods once the co-leads have completed it
