This methodology contains energy consumption and CO2 emissions data associated with the use of domestic ovens. It is based on a hybrid model drawing on data from both the MTP dataset and the BREDEM model. It uses the former for the typical energy usages of cooking for a household and the latter to scale this to the number of people in a household.

To use this methodology, select the fuel type (i.e. electric or gas) using the type drill choices. Next set the number of people in the household using the numberOfPeople parameter. If calculations are stored using profiles, this value can be set in the profile metadata. If this value is not specified, a default of 1 is assumed.

By default, emissions for electric ovens are calculated on the basis on the emissions intensity of the UK electricity grid. If calculations are stored using profiles, an alternative country can be specified within the profile metadata. The emission factors for electricity, based on the country supplied in the profile metadata, can be found in here and here. The emissions factor for gas this taken from this dataset.
