Electricity, residual mix, Sweden (CO2 Direct)

The emission factor for electricity can be reported as life cycle (cradle-to-grave) or in-use emissions. When calculating the emissions of purchased energy for a company, the in-use emission factor should be used. The in-use emissions for renewable energy are zero. Renewable energy sources also have life-cycle emissions, which however are typically lower than the emissions from electricity produced from fossil fuels.

On the OpenCO2.net platform, you can use our standard-based carbon footprint calculators and use this emission factor as input for emission calculations. As a paying customer, you get access to an extensive emissions database with more comprehensive features.

In addition to the information presented here, you can find more information about the type of emission (Fossil / Biogenic / Stored carbon /Carbon neutral), the life cycle stages included in the emission factor (Cradle-to-Grave / Cradle-to-Gate / Production phase / Use phase) and reliability of the emission factor (e.g. whether the emission factor has been verified by an independent third party) and other relevant information needed for the emission calculation. You can also perform unit conversions, add your own emission factors to the system and make your own list of your most used emission factors.
