This methodology contains energy consumption and CO2 emissions data associated with several generic types and ranges of screen sizes of television.

To use this methodology, select the television type and screen size using the type and size drill choices. Next set the number of hours for which the television is on, using the hoursOn parameter. The returned value represents CO2 emissions associated with the specified television usage.

By default, emissions 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.

Standby

Also in the case where calculations are stored using profiles, if the standby item in the /home/appliances/entertainment/generic category has been set, any profile items created in this category will incorporate an estimate of emissions associated with the specified level of standby usage, i.e. emissions reflect those associated with both full power and standby usage.
