Emissions & Generation Resource Integrated Database (eGRID)

The Emissions & Generation Resource Integrated Database (eGRID) is a comprehensive source of data on the environmental characteristics of almost all electric power generated in the United States. These environmental characteristics include:

  • air emissions for nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide;
  • emissions rates;
  • net generation;
  • resource mix; and
  • many other attributes.

eGRID data can be used for the following activities:

  • greenhouse gas registries and inventories,
  • carbon footprints,
  • consumer information disclosure,
  • emission inventories and standards,
  • power market changes, and
  • avoided emission estimates.
