About IEA

The International Energy Agency (IEA) provides comprehensive electricity emission factors, which are essential for understanding the carbon footprint of electricity generation across different regions and energy sources. These factors assist governments, businesses, and researchers in measuring the environmental impact of electricity consumption and in developing strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the energy sector.
