Electrical impact factors
Users can give their own impact factors.
We recommend using impact factors describing your national or regional electrical mix. An impact factor constructed from a market-based approach should not be used.
Boavizta's impact factors
Users can use the average impact factors per country available in BoaviztAPI.
Impact factors will depend on the
usage_location defined by the user.
By default, the average european mix is used.
usage_location are given in a trigram format, according to the list of the available countries.
You can find bellow the data source and methodology used for each impact criteria.
GWP - Global warming potential factor
- For Europe (2019): Quantification of the carbon intensity of electricity produced and used in Europe
- For the rest of the world: Ember Climate
PE - Primary energy factor
PE impact factor are not available in open access. We use the consumption of fossil resources per kwh (APDf/kwh) per country and extrapolate this consumption to renewable energy :
PE/kwh = ADPf/kwh / (1-%RenewableEnergyInMix)
