♦ 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 2014 —

● Greenhouse gas emission estimate —

Amount: 7,228,127 tonnes of CO2 Emitted (7,228,127 tonnes CO2 Eq.)
Basis: Calculation
Calculation: [Electricity Generation] * [CO2 emission factor]
Reference: ARB (2016). Technical support document on GHG inventory methodologies for the 2000-2014 inventory. See Discussion of emissions from electricity imports available at: https://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/inventory/doc/methods_00-14/ghg_inventory_00-14_technical_support_document.pdf

● Activity level used in calculations —

Activity: Electricity generation = 16,921,147,437 kWh of Unspecified sources
Basis: Data

● Parameters and Constants used in calculations —

Parameter: CO2 emission factor = 427 g / kWh
