Carbon Monitor data are made freely available to the public with a fair use open data policy. We encourage users to cite the data by this paper. Carbon Monitor is a living dataset subject to updates and the values are expected to change, as new data get included. In the process of updating our daily CO2 emission products, errors may be corrected, revisions may be made in the calculation methods, and new information may be used. Data files available for download and graphs are associated to a day of release. In case of questions regarding data and history previous releases, please contact us at contact.carbonmonitor@gmail.com. All information displayed and provided can be used at the own responsibility of users, and does not engage any responsibility from research institutions supporting Carbon Monitor and partner institutions.
Global power system accounts for a large amount of global carbon emission. The CarbonMonitor-Power is part of the international initiative CarbonMonitor which provides for the first time regularly updated, science-based estimates of daily CO2 emissions. Comparing year-to-year data, CarbonMonitor-Power reveals the demand change and the green transitioning progress of the global power system.
