Eco-sheet: 1 kWh generated using different energy sources October 12, 2008

Posted by Hans De Keulenaer in electricity.

How sustainable is a kWh?

What is the best technology to produce it?

These questions are often asked and the answers are not clear-cut, as there are a lot of variables.


Therefore, Leonardo ENERGY has produced this eco-sheet to help clarifying the issue. The environmental burden of generating one kWh from 7 different energy sources is quantified. It shows that there is no silver bullet solution, but there are advantages to explore.


This eco-sheet is the 7th in a series on quantifying the environmental impacts from energy use. You can view the full series following this link.
