  • KWh into CO2 emission equivalents

    Anybody know where I can find a conversion table that helps convert KWh of electricity consumption into kg og CO2 equivalent depending in the first instance upon country?

    I would also like conversion tables based upon discrete energy sources (oil, coal, natural gas etc)

    I have only been able to find statistics covering individual countries.

    Many thanks,
    Stuart

            From the list, Natural gas is 0.185kg/KWh
            8058720KWh x 0.185kg/KWh = 1,490,863 kg
