Dear all,
I would like to know where to find statistical data for Europe regarding the Marginal Emission Factors of electricity generation. For example, here is the data for the U.S: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/es300145v

I would also like to find Emission Intensities for national electric systems and energy sources.

Thanks, best.

Dear jlp,

Our experts in this area are currently unavailable. Due to the upcoming Easter holidays we may not be able to get back to you right away, but we will do our best to reply as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Kind regards,

Dear jlp,

Unfortunately we do not have data on marginal emission factors of electricity generation for Europe. We do provide estimates for the average emission intensity of electricity by member country in
that we provide estimates for the average emission intensity of electricity by member country in ENER028 – Overview of electricity production and use in Europe:
These are, however, not marginal factors.

Kind regards,

Dear jlp,

In response to your second question on emission intensities for national electric systems and energy sources, we unfortunately do not have available published data on this. However you may find the following information useful:

The official GHG inventory reported by the countries contains the implied emission factors used for CO2 (in kt/TJ), CH4 and N2O (in kg/TJ) and per fuel type (liquid, solid, gaseous, other fossil fuels and biomass) used for public electricity and heat production. Please note that in the official GHG inventory reporting there are no factors for nuclear and renewables other than biomass.
The latest official reporting by the countries to the UNFCCC was performed in November last year. You can find this information here:
In order to export this information, one should download the Common Reporting Format tables of the country (CRF tables), go to Table 1.A(a)s1 and get the information from the respective rows of category ‘1.A.1.a Public Electricity and Heat Production’.

I hope this is helpful.

Kind regards,
