Since 2016, the “market-based” and “location-based” accounting approaches have been implemented in accordance with GHG Protocol Scope 2 Guidance. Since then, the market-based approach has been the standard accounting approach. The historical data for 2006–2015 were calculated using a method similar to the location-based approach.
