The emissions intensity of conventional public thermal power production is the level of Carbon dioxide (CO2), Sulphur dioxide (SO2) or Nitrogen oxides (NOX) emissions per unit of power (electricity and heat) produced by public thermal power stations. The emission intensities are calculated as the ratio of CO2, SO2 and NOX emissions from public power production to the output of electricity and heat from public conventional thermal power production. Public thermal power stations generate electricity and/or heat for sale to third parties, as their primary activity. They may be privately or publicly owned. No data are available for Luxembourg and so data for this country is not included in the chart.
Think first before buying a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV).
In addition to being very expensive to run, SUVs are very fuel inefficient. They emit twice as much carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen dioxide as an average car. These chemicals contribute to air pollution as well as global warming!
