Full-Fuel-Cycle Energy and Emission Factors for Building Energy Consumption - 2013 Update

 Full-Fuel-Cycle Energy and Emission Factors for Building Energy Consumption - 2013 Update 

Full-fuel-cycle energy is the energy consumed by an appliance, system, or building as measured at the building site plus the energy consumed in the extraction, processing, and transport of primary fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas; energy losses in thermal combustion in power-generation plants; and energy losses in transmission and distribution to the building site.

This report provides updated full-fuel-cycle (FFC) energy and pollutant emission factors based on current public domain information for use by AGA and other stakeholders.  It also includes new CO2e emissions factors (including carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide), as well as non-baseload (marginal) FFC energy and emission factors.
