Emissions intensity of public conventional thermal power production, EEA-32
The emissions intensity of conventional public thermal power production is the level of CO2, SO2 or NOX emissions per unit of power (electricity and heat) produced by public thermal power stations and district heating plants. 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 (includes output from district heating plants and output from public thermal power stations). 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.
