Weekly Emissions Report
Genscape’s European emissions report is designed to provide deeper insight into the fuel mix used by the continent’s power sector. Based on direct observations of power generation at nuclear, coal, gas, wind and hydro power plants, the Genscape model produces a weekly estimate of total generation by source and country. This data is then used to estimate total CO2 emissions by the power sector in each country. Traders and analysts have come to rely on this data as a source of insight into fuel competition beyond simplistic power and fuel spot price spreads.
In addition to the country-level data, Genscape also publishes plant emissions of carbon dioxide based on measured generation and the plant’s engineering characteristics. The plants are grouped by company and country, which allows users to track total volumes by emitter.
