IGES List of Grid Emission Factors

Contributor: 
2017-11

The List of Grid Emission Factors aims to provide information to be utilized for research and analysis regarding grid emission factors. Grid Emission Factor refers to CO2 emission factor (tCO2/MWh) which will be associated with each unit of electricity provided by an electricity system. It is a parameter to determine the baseline emissions for CDM projects in the renewable energy sector (hydro, wind, solar PV, and geothermal power, etc.) and waste heat/gas recovery sector. The information of relevant items are extracted from the publicly available sources on the UNFCCC web-site. This data analysis utilises project information listed on the IGES CDM Project Database. For further information on individual project activities, please refer to the relevant databases.

Remarks:

New in the version 9.3 (November 2017 update):
• Addition of grid emission data for Lao PDR
• Update of grid emission data for Indonesia, Vietnam and Argentina.
