Other Information The usable energy database (UED) contains baseline energy use and emissions, and opportunities for reducing these (improvement potentials). The project report should be read alongside the UED. The work is currently presented as a Beta version to allow feedback from project partners and other interested parties to be incorporated in a final version. The UED was produced to improve the representation of the UK industrial sector within the whole systems TIMES model developed by the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC). Due to the substantial variability in energy use within the industrial sector the approach was to undertake bottom-up studies of subsectors of industry that were important from an energy use and emissions perspective, and to supplement this with information on cross-cutting technologies that could be applied throughout industry. Baseline data variously sourced from: International Steel Statistics Bureau (ISSB); the Confederation of Paper Industries; Mineral Products Association; and others (for a full list of source references see the project report.)
