Abstract. City-level CO2 emissions inventories are foundational for supporting the EU’s decarbonization goals. Inventories are essential for priority setting and for estimating impacts from the decarbonization transition. Here we present a new CO2 emissions inventory for 116,572 municipal and local government units in Europe. The inventory spatially disaggregates the national reported emissions, using 9 spatialization methods to distribute the 167 line items detailed in the UN's Common Reporting Framework. The novel contribution of this model is that results are provided per administrative jurisdiction at multiple administrative levels using a new spatialization approach. All data from this study is available along with an interactive map of results at https://openghgmap.net
