Full-Fuel-Cycle Energy and Emission Factors for Building Energy Consumption – 2018 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 energy forms such as coal, oil, natural gas, biomass, and nuclear fuel; energy consumed in conversion to electricity in power-generation plants; and energy consumed 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.
