In its efforts to pro-actively work towards a zero-carbon economy, the Government of Jersey is keen to develop means and metrics to understand priority actions for carbon reduction across all its operations and activities. This report focuses on establishing and understanding a nationwide grid electricity carbon factor in terms of CO2eq/GWh electricity. This factor will be used to help understand the carbon impacts of electricity use in Jersey.
This report provides an updated grid electricity factor to account for a correction in emissions from Energy from Waste.
