4.1.5 CO2 Emissions
Compared to the calculation of primary energy consumption the C02 emissions are treated in a similar way. For each energy source they are calculated on the basis of the climate corrected final energy consumption. The conversion factors depend on the energy sources and in case of electricity additionally on the country.
Example C:Falk Comprehensive School
With a CO2 emission factor of 0,2537 kg/kWh for natural gas and the climate corrected final energy consumption of 220.000 kWh the CO2 emissions come to 55.814 kg. As the conversion factor for conventional electricity in Germany is 0,6249 kg/kWh and the electricity consumption adds up to 150.000 kWh the CO2 emissions make 93.735 kg. All in all the CO2 emissions add up to 149.549 kg.
