Unified Metrics Library - Non-renewable energy consumption
The total energy consumption is the company's energy consumption coming from the following
- fuel consumption from coal and coal products
- fuel consumption from crude oil and petroleum products
- fuel consumption from natural gas
- fuel consumption from other non-renewable sources
- consumption from nuclear products
- consumption of purchased or acquired electricity, heat, steam, and cooling from non-renewable sources
Renewable sources are sources that are inexhaustible. As such, renewable energy covers wind, solar (solar thermal and solar photovoltaic) and geothermal energy, ambient energy, tide, wave and other ocean energy, hydropower, biomass, landfill gas, sewage treatment plant gas, and biogas.
Directive (EU) 2018/2001, Art. 2 (1). Renewable sources
- 10,000 megawatt-hours (kWh) of electricity from non-renewable sources
- 5,000 kWh of heat and steam from non-renewable sources
- 2,000 kWh of fuel consumption from natural gas
- 1,000 kWh of purchased coal and coal product consumption
The total energy consumption for this company would be the sum of all these values, which in this example would be 18,000 kWh.
