EU updates national emission factors for electricity in Eastern partner countries

On March 18, as part of the technical support for the ‘Covenant of Mayors’ initiative, the European Commission Joint Research Center (JRC) updated the national factors for calculating CO2 emissions and CO2eq from electricity consumption in the Eastern Partnership countries.

The European and national emission factors for determining the level of indirect emissions from electricity consumption are calculated by the JRC by dividing the total national CO2 emissions from electricity production using all energy carriers by the total final electricity consumption.

The updated factors are intended for new signatories who are just starting to work on the calculation of Baseline Emission Inventories (BEI) and on their Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans (SECAPs) development.
