Data set: Electricity Mix (03.00.000)

Full name
Electricity Mix; AC; consumption mix, at consumer; 1kV - 60kV
Reference year
Valid until
Reference flow(s)
LCI result
LCIA results included?
Energy carriers and technologies / Electricity
power grid mix
Use advice for data set
Use by medium voltage electricity customers without own electricity generators or transformers (e.g. at industry and SME), which use electricity directly from the grid. The data set can be used for all LCI/LCA studies where electricity is needed.
Data set use approval
No official approval by producer or operator
General comment
Good overall data quality. Energy carrier mix information based on official statistical information including import/export. Detailed power plant models were used, which combine measured emissions plus calculated values for not measured emissions of e.g. organics or heavy metals. Energy carrier extraction and processing data is of sufficient to good (e.g. refinery) data quality. Inventory is partly based on primary industry data, partly on secondary literature data.
LCI Method Principle
LCI Method Approaches
  • Allocation - market value
  • Allocation - exergetic content
  • Allocation - mass
  • Allocation - net calorific value
Completeness of product model
All relevant flows quantified
  • Dependent internal review by

Access information
The data set can be used free of charge by anybody to perform LCA studies, to distribute it to third parties, to convert it to other formats, to develop own data sets etc. as long as the copyright and license conditions for the ELCD data sets and the ILCD format are met that can be accessed via Please note e.g. that reference must be given to the 'Owner of data set' and to the 'ELCD database' plus version number, when using the data set or parts thereof. Please note also, that any modifications/omissions of the data set results in invalidity of any existing 'Official approval of data set by producer/operator', that the impression must be avoided that this would still be a complete ELCD data set, and that the content of further fields has to be adjusted.
