Manitoba stationary combustion

Figure 1: Manitoba GHG Emissions – 1990-2016 – Stationary combustion

In 2016, stationary combustion sources accounted for about 20% of Manitoba’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (1).

Most of these emissions are from heating our buildings.

Stationary sources include energy used in

  • residential and commercial heating
  • manufacturing and construction industries
  • electricity generation
  • mining/oil and gas extraction

Figure 1 shows how these emissions have changed from 1990 to 2016:

  • 17% decrease overall from Stationary Combustion
  • 38% decrease in residential heating – mostly due to success of programs to reduced demand (e.g. insulation, furnace replacement)
  • 10% decrease from Commercial & institutional
  • 30% increase from Manufacturing industries
