Unified Metrics Library - Non-renewable energy consumption proportion
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.
`nrP`: Non-renewable energy production
`rC`: Renewable energy consumption
`rP`: Renewable energy production
`Share = (nrC + nrP) / (rC + rP)`
`nrP`: 50,000 kWh
`rC`: 300,000 kWh
`rP`: 10,000 kWh
`Share = (200,000 + 50,000) / (300,000 + 10,000) xx100 = 80.64 %`
