Dear Sir / Madame,
Currently, I am reviewing the following data chart:
I struggle to map this data with other EEA information published for example here:
I would really like to get in touch with one of your experts regarding CO2 intensity to discuss!!
Kind regards,

The two data sets behind the charts are not comparable

the second link, is from a content that is still in DRAFT see watermark on the main page http://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/
therefore not to be taken too seriously. From that one you can also read in the title: "(electricity only)". so it is not the same data behind as the first chart.

If you need to use the data, you can trus the first chart http://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/co2-emission-intensity-1, the data source is Eurostat, see links below the chart.

Thank you very much.

Where can I find a definition of what is actually displayed in the chart you are refering to. Meaning what data is behind the chart !!

Your answer is very appreciated.

This refers indeed to the CO2 emission intensity shown in the ENER038. The respective figure 1 (CO2 emission intensity, gCO2/kWh) illustrates the CO2 emission intensity of conventional power stations and district heating, and not the CO2 emission intensity of electricity production. In other words, the electricity production from nuclear energy and renewable sources is excluded in the figure. This is explained in the indicator, in the methodological notes regarding the calculation of the CO2 intensity.

Thanks for your answer!


The second bullet below figure one states that the average emission factor intensity was in fact 360 gCO2 /kWh by 2012 when considering renewables & co.

Is there a source that displays the development of the CO2 emission factor intensity (including nuclear and renewables) over time??

This would be very helpful!

Dear Sir / Madame,

i would be really grateful if you could guide me to a source for CO2 intensity of electricty generation (including renewables, nuclear power plants, etc.) !

Kind regards and many thanks,
