Emission & Generation Resource Integrated Database (eGRID)

Metadata Updated: March 18, 2020

The Emissions & Generation Resource Integrated Database (eGRID) is a comprehensive source of data on characteristics of almost all electric power generated in the United States. This data includes capacity; heat input; net generation; associated air emissions of nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and mercury; emissions rates; resource mix (i.e., generation by fuel type); nonbaseload calculations; line losses (a.k.a, grid gross loss); and many other attributes. The data is provided at the unit and generator levels, as well as, aggregated to the plant, state, balancing authority, eGRID subregion, NERC region, and US levels
