Hi Daniel,

this value refers to the current energy mix in the country where you design your PV system. In Germany, for example, we have an energy mix that produced ~ 530 g CO2 per kWh in 2016. This value is used to calculate the CO2 emissions that were avoided thanks to your PV system.

Kind regards,

Martin

Hi again,

yes, you would have to find out the specific co2 emission for Sweden, as up-to-date as possible. Perhaps the Swedish energy ministry publishes such data? On Wikipedia I found that in 2013 the electricity consumption was 133.2 TWh, while the CO2 emissions were 37.5 Mt. This would equal to 282 g/kWh, but perhaps you'll find more recent information.

Here's the Wikipedia page:

Kind regards,

Martin
