I am using Cntlmat and Grwinven to apply growth factors to my 2012 base year inventory to scale to 2018. I’m using the /PROJECTION/ packet and all of my scale factors are larger than 1. Thus I expect the new, scaled emissions to be greater than those obtained without using Cntlmat and Grwinven.
However, the scaled outputs actually have lower emissions than the unscaled emissions. I’m stumped as to why the emissions aren’t being increased. I know the scales won’t be temporally or spatially uniform (since the scale factors are dependent on SCC), but I would not expect to see decreased emissions like I am now.
Has anyone else experienced this or have any insight? I attached my GCNTL file and please let me know if any other information would be useful.
