CO2 Equivalent Emissions Calculator

The carbon dioxide emissions calculator helps users estimate the equivalent CO2 emissions released by a plant. The calculator uses the region, annual electric use, fuel consumption, and district energy consumption to estimate the CO2 equivalent released each year.

In addition, the tool allows users to enter target energy reductions as a percentage and calculate the corresponding CO2 savings. The source of the electricity emissions factors used by the tool is: EPA, Emission Factors Hub November 2011. Based on Federal Register (2009) EPA; 40 CFR Parts 86, 87, 89 et al; Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gases.

This calculator was developed to provide a very general estimation of potential equivalent carbon dioxide emissions and savings. Final economic decisions should be based upon the use of more extensive analytical tools.
