market for electricity, low voltage, UPR, ecoinvent 3.6, Consequential
Reference product: electricity, low voltage [kWh]
Location: SI - Slovenia
This dataset describes the electricity available on the low voltage level in Slovenia for year 2014. This is done by showing the transmission of 1kWh electricity at low voltage.
[This dataset has been generated using the system model “Substitution, consequential, long-term". A system model describes how activity datasets are linked to form product systems. This consequential system model uses substitution (also known as "system expansion") to substitute by-product outputs. It includes only activities to the extent that they are expected to change in the long-term as a consequence of small-scale changes in demand, following a consequential approach, taking into account both constrained markets and technology constraints.
Version 3 of the ecoinvent database offers three system models to choose from. For more information, please visit: https://www.ecoinvent.org/database/system-models-in-ecoinvent-3/system-models-in-ecoinvent-3.html)]
Average technology used to transmit and distribute electricity. Includes underground and overhead lines, as well as air-, vacuum- and SF6-insulated high-to-medium voltage switching stations. Electricity production according to related technology datasets.
This dataset represents a market activity in the ecoinvent database. A market activity is an activity that does not transform inputs, but simply transfers a specific intermediate exchange (i.e. products, including wastes and by-products) from supplying transforming activities to other transforming activities that demand this intermediate exchange as an input, e.g. from glycerine at the supplier to glycerine at the consumer. A market dataset collects all activities with the same reference product in a certain geographical region. Furthermore, it typically includes average transport requirements for that product within the geography in question, as well as inputs of the product itself to cover any losses in trade and transport. In other words, market activities are generally intended to represent consumption mixes of a given product in a certain geographical region.
