Read the full story from U.S. EPA.

EPA, in collaboration with the Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), developed a new tool to address the need for current, regionally specific, and consumer-oriented data for life cycle assessment of electricity. The new ElectricityLCI tool creates electricity life cycle models from the best available public data on generation, emissions, and resources used from electricity production, electricity distribution, and supply chain requirements such as extraction and production.
