In 2018, stationary combustion sources accounted for about 17% 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 2018:
- 25% decrease overall from Stationary Combustion
- 28% decrease in residential heating – mostly due to success of programs to reduced demand (e.g. insulation, furnace replacement)
- 55% decrease from Commercial & institutional*
- 29% increase from Manufacturing industries

NOTE: All data are in CO2 equivalent kilotonnes per year. (1 kilotonne = 1000 tonnes = 1 million kilograms)
NOTE: There was a particularly large decrease in Commercial & institutional emissions in 2017 which we cannot explain.
