Use advice for data set
Use by low voltage electricity customers without own electricity generators or transformers (e.g. at SME and private), which use electricity directly from a hydro power plant.The dataset represents a cradle to gate inventory. It can be used to characterise the supply chain situation of the respective commodity in a representative manner. Combination with individual unit processes using this commodity enables the generation of user-specific (product) LCAs.
Data set use approval
No official approval by producer or operator
General comment
The data set covers all relevant process steps / technologies. The inventory is based on measured operating data from national statistics, literature data and / or calculated via hydro power composition in combination with (literature-based) emission models. The electricity covered by this dataset is provided by run-of-river-plants, storage plants, and pump storage plants.
