Based on a detailed analysis of UN data on electricity production in over 219 countries and the amount lost in transmission and distribution (T&D). Accurate emission factors for grid electricity and T&D losses in CO2, CH4 and N2O per kWh were derived for each country. These factors when combined with Global Warming Potentials (GWP) are used to calculate scope 2 CO2e emissions and Scope 3 T&D CO2e emissions.
