Unified Metrics Library - Non-renewable energy consumption proportion

Helper question

What proportion of the total energy consumed by the company during the period was non-renewable?


Renewable energy sources, like wind, solar, and hydropower, are sustainable and environmentally friendly, while non-renewable energy sources, such as fossil fuels and nuclear energy, are finite and can have adverse environmental impacts, including pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.




Share of non-renewable energy consumption and non-renewable energy production of your company from non-renewable energy sources compared to renewable energy sources, expressed as a percentage

Renewable energy sources means renewable non-fossil sources, namely wind, solar (solar thermal and solar photovoltaic) and geothermalenergy, ambient energy, tide, wave and other ocean energy, hydropower, biomass, landfill gas, sewage treatment plant gas, and biogas while non-renewable energy sources means all other energy sources.

Non-renewable energy consumption refers to the use of energy resources that are finite and cannot be naturally replaced on a human timescale, derived from fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas), which are burned to generate electricity, power vehicles, heat homes and nuclear energy. The extraction, processing, and combustion of non-renewable energy sources can have significant environmental impacts. These include air and water pollution, habitat disruption, and, in the case of fossil fuels, the release of greenhouse gases leading to climate change.


nrC : Non-renewable energy consumption

nrP : Non-renewable energy production

rC : Renewable energy consumption

rP : Renewable energy production

Share = (nrC + nrP) / (rC + rP)


EFRAG ESRS E1 Climate change. Non-renewable sources from paragraph 33, page 9


nrC : 200,000 kWh

nrP : 50,000 kWh

rC : 300,000 kWh

rP : 10,000 kWh

Share = (200,000 + 50,000) / (300,000 + 10,000) xx100 = 80.64 %
