Figure Octet Stream Estimated impact of different factors on the reduction in emissions of Sulfur dioxide (SO2) from public electricity and heat production between 1990 and 2007, EEA-32
The chart shows the estimated contributions of the various factors that have affected emissions from public electricity and heat production (including public thermal power stations, nuclear power stations, hydro power plants and wind plants).

Figure Estimated average EU-25 external costs for electricity generation technologies in 2003
Average emissions per unit of electricity generation are taken from ExternE-Pol (2005) and include emissions from the operation of the power plant and the rest of the energy chain

Figure Share of combined heat and power in gross electricity production in 2002
The method for data collection by Eurostat on CHP was revised in 2000 and 2002 and has tended to decrease the overall share of electricity from CHP

Figure Gross electricity production by fuel, EU-27
Data shown are for gross electricity production and include electricity production from both public plants and auto-producers. Renewables include electricity produced from hydro (excluding pumping), biomass, municipal waste, geothermal, wind and solar PV. The share of renewables presented in the chart is that for production and hence does not correspond to the share, for consumption, as required by Directive 2001/77/EC. The difference between both shares is accounted for by the net balance between imports and exports of electricity. ‘Other fuels’ include electricity produced from power plants not accounted for elsewhere, such as those fuelled by certain types of industrial wastes. It also includes the electricity generated as a result of pumping in hydro-power stations.
