market for electricity, medium voltage, UPR, ecoinvent 3.6, Allocation, APOS
Reference product: electricity, medium voltage [kWh]
Location: CA-PE - Canada, Prince Edward Island
This dataset describes the electricity available on the medium voltage level in Canada, Prince Edward Island for year 2014. This is done by showing the transmission of 1kWh electricity at medium voltage.
The shares of electricity technologies on this market are valid for the year 2016. They have been calculated by the data provider and don't necessarily correspond with the production volumes entered in the undefined datasets of the different electricity producers. The shares have been calculated based on statistics from 2016: IEA World Energy Statistics and Balances. OECD iLibrary, eISSN: 1683-4240, DOI: 10.1787/enestats-data-en and Government of Canada - Statistics Canada: StatCAN, https://www.statcan.gc.ca/eng/start. Electricity import statistics have been calculated for 2016 by Pablo Tirado (CIRAIG). Further information can be found in a report available on ecoQuery, section 'Files'.
[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)]
Adaptation from global aluminum industry data. It will be considered in uncertainty
Definition of the voltage levels:
- High voltage level above 24 kV (large scale industry)
- Medium voltage level between 1 kV and 24 kV (medium to small scale industry, service sector
and public buildings)
- Low voltage level below 1 kV (Households)
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.
