Additional information

Aggregating both effects provides the actual emission changes. Fuel efficiency describes the effect resulting from changes in the amount of fuel used in public power and heat plants per unit of electricity and heat produced. Share of biomass describes the effect resulting from changes in the share of biomass in total fuel used in public power and heat plants. Shift from coal/oil to gas describes the effect resulting from the shift to less carbon-intensive fossil fuels in public power plants.
