Resource or Project Abstract

"CON+AIR, is research project that explores the challenges that arise where climate policy CONflicts with AIR policy. The project was a partnership of the Dublin-based research consultancy EnvEcon, and the Bergen Norway based, Norwegian Institute for Air Research.
CONAIR was funded by the Irish EPA and ran for two years from until April 2019. The project focuses on potential emissions from residential sector heating and personal transport in the Republic of Ireland. Depending on the combination of fuels, technologies and social practices applied, these sectors can contribute to increased emissions of Nitrogen Oxides (NO & NO2) and particulates (PM10 & PM2.5) both of which contribute to adverse health outcomes.

Geographical and Spatial Information Related To This Resource

Description of Geographical Characteristics of This Project or Dataset
The emissions scenarios in this project are for the Republic of Ireland in its entirety. The spatial distribution of emissons occurs along roads and small electoral areas. Air pollution concentration maps are made for Republic of Ireland and also for Dublin.

Supplementary Information About This Resource

In this section some supplementary information about this resource is outlined. Lineage information helps us to understand why this project was carried out, what policy or research requirements did it fulfil, etc. Lineage is important in understanding the rationale behind the carrying out of a project or the collection of a specific dataset etc. Links to web sites, applications, papers, etc are outlined to provide you with additional information or supplementary reading about the project or dataset

Lineage information about this project or dataset
The background to the work is a study by (Kelly et al., 2017) that identified significant potential pressures for air pollution management in Ireland associated with specific strategies identified for delivering progress on climate targets. Specifically, the study identified biomass use in the industrial and residential sectors as being a major source of increased PM2.5 and VOC emissions, with transport sector ?dieselisation? also noted as a source of higher air pollutant emissions in the underlying analyses.
Supplementary Information
These maps were generated by the EMEP and EPISODE models. The underlying scenario assumptions used to generate the national emission levels in each scenario are detailed in the project reports.

The emission outcomes were spatially distributed using ratios from the MAPEIRE project, as well as own in-house methods for transport and residential fuel use.

Nilu then processed these values to generate the associated maps.
