The Emissions & Generation Resource Integrated Database (eGRID) is a comprehensive source of data on the environmental characteristics of electric power generated in the United States. These environmental characteristics include:air emissions for nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide;emissions rates;net generation;resource mix; andmany other attributes.
eGRID data can be used to support the following activities:greenhouse gas registries and inventories,carbon footprinting,consumer information disclosure,development of emissions inventories and emission standards,analysis of changing power markets, andestimation of avoided emissions.
