Calculation methodology

Assessment of year-to-date emissions savings (in tonnes of CO2 equivalent) from the operation of Russian-design NPPs in Russia:

Es.= СО2alt x (PG by NPPs in Russia), where
СО2alt are emissions of CO2 equivalent from alternative sources, calculated based on an assumption that 100% of nuclear power generation is replaced with other electricity sources in proportion to their shares in the global power generation structure1, with emissions of CO2 equivalent reassessed accordingly by type of generation2
Calculated СО2alt = 501.8 tonnes of СO2 equivalent/GWh.

PG by NPPs in Russia is year-to-date power generation by Russian-design NPPs in Russia*

* The online calculator of emissions savings from Russian-design NPPs in Russia uses data from JSC Rosenergoatom Concern on year-to-date nuclear power generation

Sources:
1 Data from the International Energy Agency (IEA) (the World Energy Outlook report by the IEA, 2019)

2 Data from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) (the Mitigation of Climate Change report by the IPCC, 2014) and the World Nuclear Association (WNA) (the Comparison of Lifecycle Greenhouse Gas Emissions of Various Electricity Generation Sources report by the WNA)

Procedure for assessing CO2 emissions savings from the operation of Russian-design NPPs (in tonnes of CO2 equivalent)

The assessment of historical emissions savings (in tonnes of CO2 equivalent) from the operation of Russian-design NPPs globally is calculated using the following formula:
Es.= СО2alt x (PG by NPPs in Russia + PG by NPPs abroad), where

СО2alt — are emissions of CO2 equivalent from alternative sources, calculated based on an assumption that 100% of nuclear power generation is replaced with other electricity sources in proportion to their shares in the global power generation structure1, with emissions of CO2 equivalent reassessed accordingly by type of generation2.
Calculated СО2alt= 501.8 tonnes of СO2 equivalent/GWh.

PG by NPPs in Russia is annual power generation by Russian-design NPPs in Russia.3

PG by NPPs abroad is annual power generation by Russian-design NPPs abroad.4
