Direct greenhouse gas emission factors from energy sources in import and export markets
A data set by Hydro Québec on direct greenhouse gas emission factors from energy sources in Quebec's import and export markets. Updated annually. ## Method Data from public sources external to the company are extracted and compiled. Direct greenhouse gas emission factors are presented for each of the energy sources on an external market from which Québec can import energy or to which it can export energy. Plants powered by renewable energies do not produce direct GHG emissions. Sources of GHG emissions from fossil fuel plants: * Quebec: https://www.hydroquebec.com/data/developpement-durable/pdf/d-5647-etiquette-metrique2021-fr-vf.pdf * Ontario: values calculated retroactively from the following sites of the Independent Electricity System Operator (SIERE): https://www.ieso.ca/-/media/Files/IESO/Document-Library/gas-phase-out/Decarbonization-and-Ontarios-Electricity-System.ashx and https://www.ieso.ca/en/Corporate-IESO/Media/Year-End-Data#yearenddata * New York State, New- England, MISO, and PJM: https://www.epa.gov/egrid GHG emission values from electricity generation in New York State, New England, and by MISO and PJM are calculated from plant GHG emissions published in the EPA's eGrid database (https://www.epa.gov/egrid). The GHG emission values from electricity generation in New Brunswick and Ontario come from the federal government (https://www.cer-rec.gc.ca/en/data-analysis/energy-markets/provincial-territorial-energy-profiles/provincial-territorial-energy-profiles-new-brunswick.html) and the SIERE respectively. All of these values differ from the values recommended by the Regulations Amending the Mandatory Reporting of Certain Emissions of Contaminants into the Air (RDOCECA) Regulations. ## Additional Information * Geographic coverage: North-East America * Manuals and conditions of use: The data provided are raw, with no guarantee of quality, and are subject to change without notice.
