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.

Fly only for distances greater than 700 km. Otherwise take the train. A transatlantic flight produces almost half as much CO2 as an average person produces over a period of one year while meeting all his or her other needs, such as lighting, heating and car travel!
