The next edition of the London Atmospheric Emission Inventory (with a base year of 2013) is nearing completion for publication later this year. Given the complexity of quantifying and incorporating emissions sources t is not possible at this stage to add include auxiliary engines such as refrigerated transport units. However, my officials are considering how best to do this for the following edition of the LAEI, which is likely to be published in 2017.
