CO2 Emission Prognosis

The dataset is an estimated prognosis for at least the next 9 hours for the CO2 emission from the estimated electricity consumption in Denmark per kWh.

Additional Info

Field Value

The forecast is based on the production schedules for each power plant, combined with the CO2 emission per kWh per power plant. The forecast is updated with the production schedules during the day.\nThe values for DK1 and DK2 are the same, because both represent the total value of CO2 emissions in Denmark. Ongoing work will later give the correct individual values for the two price areas and the current value (for DK1 and DK2) will be shown under an extra column named DK. \nFor further information please see the document (in Danish) “Deklarationer af EL”. \n\nPlease also note: \n-\tDepending on the time of the day an update of the prognosis may include estimates for more than 9 hours, but every update will at least have 9 hours into the future. \n-\tThe resolution of the data is 5 minutes but the up-date frequency is a bit slower, which is 15 minutes.\n-\tTo calculate the emission rate from CO2 the 125% method is used, which means that coproduced heat is \n produced by a given efficiency by 125%. \n
