market for electricity, low voltage, UPR, ecoinvent 3.6, Allocation, APOS
Reference product: electricity, low voltage [kWh]
Location: IN-Northern grid - India, Northern grid
This dataset describes the electricity available on the low voltage level in India - Northern grid. This is done by showing the transmission of 1kWh electricity at low voltage.
The shares of electricity technologies on this market are valid for the year 2014. They have been implemented by the software layer and don't represent the production volumes in the unlinked datasets valid for the year 2012. These shares have been calculated based on statistics from 2014. Basic source: IEA. 2017. IEA World Energy Statistics and Balances. OECD iLibrary, eISSN: 1683-4240, DOI: 10.1787/enestats-data-en. Further information will be available in a report available on ecoQuery.
[This dataset has been generated using the system model “Allocation at the point of substitution" (APOS). A system model describes how activity datasets are linked to form product systems. The APOS model subdivides multi-output activities by physical properties, economic, mass or other properties allocation. By-products of treatment processes are considered to be part of the waste-producing system and are allocated together. Markets in this model include all activities in proportion to their current production volume.
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.
