SEEG Power Sector Monitor
Deepening the System Study for Estimating GHG emissions (Seeg), the IEMA presents the SEEG Power Sector Monitor, developed through a partnership with Greenpeace and The Climate Observatory (OC).
The Seeg Power Sector Monitor is a web platform that aims to provide constantly updated information that can subsidize studies and assessments about the Brazilian power sector its greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions. This consolidated and systematized information can broaden the user’s comprehension regarding the dynamic use of natural resources in order to generate electricity in the country and the correlated environmental impact, being developed for public officials, civil society organizations, academic community and public.
On its first version, the platform brings daily historical data regarding electricity generation of the power plants connected to the National’s Interconnected System (SIN) since 2009. The data is updated daily through information provided by the National System Operator (ONS). The data is categorized by subsystem of the SIN, energy source (and primary energy source). Moreover, as in SEEG, the Monitor estimates the emissions of GHG deriving from the power sector – carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO) e non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOC). Today, the platform allows the user, through interactive graphics, to keep up with the evolution of SIN’s electricity demand, the participation of energy sources on Brazil’s electricity mix, GHG emissions and the intensity of GHG emissions by generated electricity. It is also possible to download the complete database, which contains the full data regarding emissions and electricity generation.
