I switched my XSL from XSLT 1.0 to 2.0 because I wanted to be able to access some of the functions in 2.0, and now I'm getting the following error message:

Error in XPath 2.0 expression, Cast failed, invalid lexical value - xs:double ''

My XSL looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:fn="http://www.w3.org/2005/xpath-functions">
	<xsl:variable name="SQM_Petroleum_Refining_CH4_Emission_Quantity">
		<xsl:choose>
			<xsl:when test="/Report/Report_Detail/Sources/SQM/Petroleum_Refining/Emissions/Emission[Gas = 'CH4' ]/Emission_Quantity  != '' ">
				<xsl:value-of select="number(sum(/Report/Report_Detail/Sources/SQM/Petroleum_Refining/Emissions/Emission[Gas = 'CH4' ]/Emission_Quantity))"/>
			</xsl:when>
			<xsl:otherwise><xsl:value-of select="number(0)"/></xsl:otherwise>
		</xsl:choose>
	</xsl:variable>
	<xsl:template match="/">
	<xsl:value-of select="$SQM_Petroleum_Refining_CH4_Emission_Quantity"/>
	</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

XSLT2 is type sensitive.

You need to cast to number and filter out the empty ones

            <xsl:when test="/Report/Report_Detail/Sources/SQM/Petroleum_Refining/Emissions/Emission[Gas = 'CH4' ]/Emission_Quantity[normalize-space()]">
                <xsl:value-of select="sum(/Report/Report_Detail/Sources/SQM/Petroleum_Refining/Emissions/Emission[Gas = 'CH4' ]/Emission_Quantity[normalize-space()]/number())"/>
            </xsl:when>

but you don't need the choose construct,
the sum of no nodes is 0
so take the ones that are castable as xs:double directly

    <xsl:variable name="SQM_Petroleum_Refining_CH4_Emission_Quantity"
        select="sum(/Report/Report_Detail/Sources/SQM/Petroleum_Refining/Emissions/Emission[Gas = 'CH4' ]/Emission_Quantity[. castable as xs:double])"/>
