The EEA data set and graph for "Electricity generation — CO2 emission intensity" in gCO2/kWh is accessible and user-friendly. However, the data is only provided for the years 1990 to 2016. The International Energy Agency (IEA) Tracking Clean Energy Progress, Power webpage (https://www.iea.org/tcep/power/) provides "Carbon intensity of electricity generation" in gCO2/kWh with data from 2000 to 2018 for the EU and other regions/countries around the world.

Please would you add 2017 and 2018 carbon intensity data to the EEA electricity generation dataset and graph! After all, there is GOOD NEWS in this information!

Thank you, Bridget Chadwick

Dear Ms. Chadwick,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

Indeed, the respective EEA dataset on CO2 emission intensity of electricity generation is currently available for the years 1990 to 2016. Last year, the EEA updated the dataset during the last quarter of 2018, using the most recently available, official energy data from Eurostat (available only for the years up until 2016). The EEA dataset was part of the EEA indicator ENER038, Overview of electricity generation and use. In 2019, EEA plans to update the respective dataset also during the last quarter of 2019, taking stock of the most recent energy data from Eurostat (for 2017). The data will be published independently (as dataset), as the ENER038 indicator will be discontinued.

We hope that this information may be useful for you.

With kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service
