Baselines for policy assessments: data products

Our baseline comes as a series of input-output tables, featuring a detailed set of numbers on energy, emissions, and economic structure.

The latest time series of input-output tables is a supplement to the 2021 edition of Global Energy and Climate Outlook (GECO). The data is available for download in the JRC data catalogue (Baseline GECO 2021). This baseline was specifically designed to assess the new climate pledges announced in the lead-up to the 2021 Glasgow climate conference. For the EU, this version is consistent with the EU Reference Scenario 2020; a version with EU member state detail is available.

The previous input-output tables published as a supplement to the GECO 2020 are also available for download in the JRC data catalogue (Baseline GECO 2020). This version explicitly takes into account the consequences of COVID-19 and is documented in the corresponding 2020 GECO report.

An earlier version of input-output tables was made available as a supplement to the 2018 GECO report. It can be downloaded from the JRC data catalogue (Baseline GECO 11/2018) and is documented in the accompanying report: Global macroeconomic balances for mid-century climate analyses.

If you use the baseline in your work, please cite the dataset and/or the corresponding report.
