NZ Fuel and Electricity Energy & Life Cycle Emission Factors
This paper describes the results and methodology used for determining the primary energy, carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas emission factors for New Zealand electricity and fuels. The analysis is based on using life cycle analysis (LCA) methodology so consequently includes all upstream as well as in-use emissions. The results have also been compared to the MED published in-use emissions.
