♦ Category: Energy

IPCC: 1A1ai - Fuel Combustion Activities - Energy Industries - Main Activity Electricity and Heat Production - Electricity Generation
Sector: Electricity Generation (Imports) : Unspecified Imports : Pacific Southwest

♦ Activity: Electricity generation - Unspecified sources

♦ Greenhouse gas: Carbon dioxide ( CO2 )

► Year 2000 —

● Greenhouse gas emission estimate —

Amount: 9,997,434 tonnes of CO2 Emitted (9,997,434 tonnes CO2 Eq.)
Basis: Calculation
Calculation: [Electricity Generation] * [CO2 emission factor]

● Activity level used in calculations —

Activity: Electricity generation = 11,889,968,804 kWh of Unspecified sources
Basis: Data

● Parameters and Constants used in calculations —

Parameter: CO2 emission factor = 841 g / kWh
