“Dear Forum, I have been looking into trying to extract power plant level emissions from the EPRTR datasets. Does anyone have experience doing this? I am struggling to understand the connection between the FacilityID, the FacilityReportID, and the PollutantReleaseID. My interpretation from reading the IDs was that the EPRTR has not published new data on CO2 generation since 2004, but that seems hardly possible.
Essentially I want to match these datasets so I can see annual CO2 emissions for all the power plants (combustion plants <50 MW) on an annual basis for 2015 (or the most recent yet available). Any input on getting CO2 emissions from power plants from EPRTR data would be helpful though.”
