Matching of power plants by fuel

ETC/CME Report 10/2021

The aim of this paper is to develop a dataset identifying power plants in Europe and their main fuel type from power plants that are reported under activity code 20 together with other combustion installations. Since ETS data is one of the first official data sources to become available in the year, this methodology will help provide an early indication of changes in fuel composition in the European power sector.
