CoM Default Emission Factors

Collection: CoM : Covenant of Mayors 

Description

This dataset provides the default emission factors utilized in the framework of the Covenant of Mayors Initiative. They can be used by local authorities to estimate their CO2 or Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions due to: (1) local consumption of fossil fuels and wastes (non-renewable); (2) local consumption of biofuels, biomass, solar thermal and geothermal Renewable energy sources (RES); (3) local electricity production from other RES (wind, hydroelectric, photovoltaics). The CoM Standard default emission factors are the IPCC (2006) default factors for stationary combustion. The LCA default emission factors have been calculating by adding to the standard emission factors, emissions from the supply chain as estimated from the European Platform on Life Cycle Assessment, as well as other databases and literature reviews.
