Hi all!

I found a super cool website, where you see in real time the CO2eq emission of the European electricity production and also the trades that are happening between the countries.

As expected, Norway, Sweden and France have the lowest numbers (between 31 and 118 g CO2eq/kWh when I checked), and Poland is by far the most polluting country in Europe regarding the electricity generation.

At the moment of writing, Germany is using a lot of carbon - confirming that, even if medias are praising the country's policies, there is still a lot to be done to achieve a sustainable electrical grid.

 

Personally, I was kind of shocked to see that Italy is doing better than Finland, even in a winter and not-so-sunny day. 

 

Did you notice something peculiar that you weren't expecting?
