Emission Factor of Electric Current

Calculating with the emission factor of carbon dioxide in power generation. Factor, quantity or total emissions can be calculated. The emission factor indicates how many grams of CO2 are released when generating one kilowatt hour of electricity. This factor depends on the type of power generation. In the case of fossil fuels such as coal, the emission factor is far higher than with renewable energies such as solar and wind. The exact factor can be provided by the energy provider, for example.

Emission factor: g/kWh
Amount of electricity:
CO2 emission: kg

Please enter two values, the third value will be calculated. The unit for the amount of electricity can be changed.

Example: in the German electricity mix for 2018, the average emission factor is around 600 grams of CO2 for one kilowatt hour of electricity. The average power consumption of a household is 3500 kWh/year. This releases 2100 kilograms of CO2 per year and household.

Here you can convert metric units into customary and imperial units.
