Electricity and heat output

Electricity and heat and unallocated autoproducers, and electricity and heat output as described above. In the first table on CO2 emissions per kWh, the CO2 emissions include emissions from fossil fuels, industrial waste and non-renewable municipal waste that are consumed for electricity and heat generation in the transformation sector and output includes electricity and heat generated from fossil fuels, nuclear, hydro (excluding pumped storage), geothermal, solar, biomass, etc. As a result,...

General note on EDGAR

On international information sources, this dataset provides a sound basis for comparability. For estimating the 2000 emissions a special Fast Track method was applied to estimate the emissions consistent with the detailed estimates made for 1995 (see below). For estimating the 2005 emissions per country an extrapolation method was applied to estimate for the most significant source categories the emissions consistent with the more detailed country-specific estimates made for 2000 (see below)....

Reference Approach vs Sectoral Approach

The Reference Approach and the Sectoral Approach often give different results because the Reference Approach is a top-down approach using a country's energy supply data and has no detailed information on how the individual fuels are used in each sector. The Reference Approach provides estimates of CO2 to compare with estimates derived using a Sectoral Approach. Theoretically, it indicates an upper bound to the Sectoral Approach 1A fuel combustion, because some of the carbon in the fuel is not...

Notes on tables and graphs

Row 1 Sectoral Approach contains total CO2 emissions from fuel combustion as calculated using the IPCC Tier 1 Sectoral Approach and corresponds to IPCC Source Sink Category 1 A. Emissions calculated using a Sectoral Approach include emissions only when the fuel is actually combusted. Row 2 Main activity producer electricity and heat contains the sum of emissions from main activity producer electricity generation, combined heat and power generation and heat plants. Main activity producers...
