I am looking for data on the CO2-emissions (best: kg/kWh) emitted from power generation (electricity) in the European Union in 2014/ 2015.

Is anyone able to help?

Thank you

The International Energy Agency provides the information you are looking for, although the series currently stops in 2013. The series is named "CO2 emissions per kWh".

thanks for helping me out.

I searched the IEA website for this data but couldn't the series. Could you maybe provide me with a link?!

Would be nice. Thanks

Dear mfussel,

Please see this indicator on the EEA website: http://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/assessment.

Figure 1 of the indicator shows the CO2 intensity from conventional thermal stations. The numerator is based on emissions reported to UNFCCC for the source CRF category ‘1A1a’ (electricity and heat production combined). The denominator is based on energy statistics reported to Eurostat and includes electrical output from conventional thermal power stations as well as derived/district heating. The electrical output from nuclear and renewables are not included in the denominator. Thus, the intensities shown over-estimate the overall CO2 intensity in countries with significant production of nuclear and/or renewables for electricity generation. The EEA is considering a revision of the indicator in the autumn to consider all electricity production and not just from fossil fuels and ensure better comparability across countries.

I hope this is helpful.

Kind regards,

Dear EEA,

thanks again for your support.

This source is exactely what I was looking for.
