Use advice for data set
The data set can be used by customers (e.g. industry and SME), which use process steam from energy carrier specific heat plants. The data set is calculated with an efficiency of 90% as an default value. If the exact efficiency is known, the data set can be scaled linearly according to the efficiency. In general, typical efficiency ranges are 80%-95%. The data set is not to be used as district heating LCI result.
Data set use approval
No official approval by producer or operator
General comment
A detailed heat plant model was used, which combines measured emissions taken from national statistics plus calculated values for not measured emissions of e.g. simple organics or heavy metals. In general, the efficiencies are 85%, 90% and 95%.
