GPED (Global Power Emissions Database)
2
Overview
3
The Global Power Emissions Database, GPED, is a new database of global fossil fuel- and biomass-burning power-generating plants and their emissions as of 2010. GPED is based on the WEPP database to compile the basic operational information of generators, and replaced basic information and also added emissions data for plants operating in the U.S., China and India using the more comprehensive and reliable data contained in the regional databases eGRID (available at: https://www.epa.gov/energy/egrid), CPED (Liu et al., 2015) and ICPD (Lu et al., 2012 and 2013), respectively. The development of the GPED was led by Tsinghua University (Qiang Zhang) with input from Argonne National Laboratory (Zifeng Lu and David Streets).
4
GPED encompasses 231 countries or regions and all generating plants that burn coal, oil, natural gas, biomass/waste, or other fuels with their emissions of CO2, NOx, SO2, and primary PM2.5 as of 2010.
