This indicator measures the impact of energy savings on the reduction of CO2 emissions. CO2 savings are calculated by multiplying the total energy savings by sector by the average emission factor of the sector (tCO2/toe).
This ratio is calculated by dividing the total CO2 emissions of the sector (including the indirect CO2 emissions from the power sector and heat production) by its final energy consumption, both data coming from the ODYSSEE database. CO2 savings are also expressed in relation to 2000.
