CO2 intensity is a measure that makes it possible to compare CO2 emissions independently of growth. CO2 intensity shows the CO2 reductions achieved in comparison with simultaneous CO2 emissions.
So far, the CO2 intensity recorded by EnAW participants has improved steadily during the second commitment period (2013 until today). Thanks to a range of measures in place since 2013, the year 2021 witnessed CO2 savings of 721 870 tons. Total CO2 emissions still amounted to 3 982 906 tonnes in 2021 CO2 intensity for 2021 was therefore 84.6 per cent.
CO2 SAVINGS FOR THE YEAR 2021 AMOUNTED TO 721 870 TONS.
Energy efficiency is a measure by which energy consumption can be compared, irrespective of growth. Energy efficiency shows how much energy has been saved, as against simultaneous energy consumption.
EnAW participants showed steadily improving energy efficiency over the second commitment period. The improvement for 2021 even outstripped that of previous years. Some 4 166 918 megawatt hours of electricity and fuel have therefore been saved thanks to various measures in place since 2013. At the same time, 36 989 719 megawatt hours of energy were consumed. This meant that energy efficiency for 2021 was 112.8 per cent.
