Step 2 of 5

Now add information about your purchased electricity and (if applicable) your own electricity generation.
For your carbon balance a distinction is made between conventional electricity (electricity mix in Germany) and green electricity. When choosing an electricity supplier, also make sure that they contribute to the expansion of renewable energy systems in Germany. As with heating, the carbon emissions of your total electricity consumption are divided by all household members.
You will usually find the annual consumption on the statement from your electricity supplier. If you don't have this to hand, you can also use the questionnaire to estimate the amount.


The carbon footprint is calculated from the combustion of fossil fuels for electricity generation and from upstream processes. Upstream processes include, for example, the mining of coal or the construction of a wind power plant.
Your contribution to the transformation of the energy system in Germany is calculated in terms of avoidance and the carbon handprint.
The avoidance is calculated from either green or self-generated electricity and from above-average energy efficiency.
Your carbon handprint increases if you feed your own generated electricity into the grid.

My carbon scenario

In your carbon scenario you can now look to the future. Answer questions about changes you're planning, new habits and even investments. On the basis of your carbon balance today the projections are carried out, up to what the German average would be in 2050.


Your carbon scenario picks up where you've left off in your carbon balance.


Personal changes in the next 5 years are reflected in your short term scenario.


A more climate-friendly society and your personal changes then lead to a medium-term scenario covering the next 10 to 15 years.

Germany 2050

Your acceptance of long-term climate protection measures and the corresponding policies then lead to a projected German average value for the year 2050.

Save the current status of your calculation if you want to edit it later, send it to friends or post it in a social network. The data is available for you to retrieve for a period of 18 months. If you do not retrieve the data during this period, it will be deleted.

None of us are truely average. Therefore, we would like to get a more accurate picture of your living circumstances to put your carbon balance into context. By voluntarily entering some additional information, you can make an important contribution to further the anonymous, scientific evaluation of carbon balances! Your help is much appreciated!
