As much as possible we added sources and comments to the data we use in the calculator.
Main sources are:
- Emissions & Generation Resource Integrated Database (eGRID) - 2016
- Electricity Map - 2019
- Electricity carbon intensity in European Member States: Impacts on GHG emissions of electric vehicles - 2017
- Carbon Footprint's Country specific electricity factors - 2018
It could be that some pieces of data are erroneous or become oudated. The purpose of hosting the data here on Github is to make it debatable and collectively improvable through issues and pull requests. Jump in!
