Synopsis
  • This resource includes an interactive map and graphs that show carbon intensity of electricity per kWh, for countries in different parts of the world, starting from the year 2000.
Teaching Tips

Positives

  • The interactive provides three different ways for students to explore data (chart, map, table).
  • Students may choose to view datasets for various geographic locations and time periods.
  • Related research and data are linked.
  • The site explains how the data was collected.

Additional Prerequisites

  • Educator would need time to get familiar with this interactive media and decide on how to implement it with the learners.

Differentiation

  • There are other related interactive maps for other sources of electricity. 
  • Can be used to create awareness about one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Scientist Notes

The resource contains carbon intensity of electricity in specific countries. Datasets available for a variable time span from 2000-2020. The data output is accurate and students can visualize to understand countries that emit more CO2 in the course of generating electricity.
