CO2 Intensity Reduction Goal
On Sept. 17, 2009, Idaho Power established a goal to reduce its resource portfolio's average CO2 emission intensity for 2010 through 2013 to a level of 10 to 15 percent below its 2005 CO2 emission intensity of 1,194 lbs CO2/megawatt-hour (MWh).
Get the specifics about the goal from IDACORP, Inc.'s 8-K issued Sept. 17, 2009.
The chart below tracks Idaho Power's progress toward meeting this goal.
The current year-to-date and average 2010-2013 period-to-date CO2 emission intensity is updated monthly on a provisional basis and trued up to actual figures on an annual basis. As illustrated below, Idaho Power is on track to exceed the CO2 emission intensity reduction goal it established in 2009.
Reflecting its further commitment to that goal, in November 2012 Idaho Power extended its goal to reduce its resource portfolio's average CO2 emission intensity to a level of 10 to 15 percent below its 2005 CO2 emission intensity through 2015.
The chart below only includes emissions and generation from Idaho Power-owned generation resources. If Idaho Power has sold any Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), the renewable generation creating those RECs is not included in this CO2 intensity calculation.
