Tracing carbon dioxide emissions in the European electricity markets
Results on consumption-based emission intensities of power generation for European countries from 2016 to 2019 are reported and it is found that in particular for well connected smaller countries, the consideration of imports has a significant impact on the attributed emissions.
Hourly accounting of carbon emissions from electricity consumption
Carbon accounting is important for quantifying the sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that are driving climate change, and is increasingly being used to guide policy, investment, business, and
Open-data based carbon emission intensity signals for electricity generation in European countries -- top down vs. bottom up approach
Dynamic grid emission factors provide a temporally resolved signal about the carbon intensity of electricity generation in the power system. Since actual carbon dioxide emission measurements are
Tracking emissions in the US electricity system
The economic input–output model is adapted to track emissions flows through electric grids and quantify the pollution embodied in electricity production, exchanges, and, ultimately, consumption for the 66 continental US Balancing Authorities (BAs).
Controlling electricity storage to balance electricity costs and greenhouse gas emissions in buildings
The optimal management of flexible loads and generation sources such as battery storage systems in buildings is often concerned with minimizing electricity costs. There is an increasing need to
CO2 Intensities and Primary Energy Factors in the Future European Electricity System
The European Union strives for sharp reductions in both CO2 emissions as well as primary energy use. Electricity consuming technologies are becoming increasingly important in this context, due to the
Carbon Leakage in a European Power System with Inhomogeneous Carbon Prices
Global warming is one of the main threats to the future of humanity and extensive emissions of greenhouse gases are found to be the main cause of global temperature rise as well as climate change.


Carbon Flow Tracing Method for Assessment of Demand Side Carbon Emissions Obligation
As increasing number of nations, industries, and individuals are involved in the carbon mitigation initiative, it becomes significant to answer what amount of carbon emissions social entities are
Flow-Based Analysis of Storage Usage in a Low-Carbon European Electricity Scenario
The application of the flow tracing method to power flows in and out of storage units allows to analyse the usage of this technology option in large-scale interconnected electricity systems. We apply
Decompositions of injection patterns for nodal flow allocation in renewable electricity networks
Contrary to standard flow tracing approaches, a decomposition method of injection patterns is introduced that provides nodal allocations of link flows and costs in electricity networks by decomposing the network injection pattern into market-inspired elementary import/export building blocks.
Power flow tracing in a simplified highly renewable European electricity network
This technique follows the power flow through the network and assigns the link capacity usage to the respective sources or sinks using a diffusion-like process, thus taking into account the underlying network structure and injection pattern.
