Remote sensing results and GIS technology are used to calculate the carbon emission from changes in land usage. (2) Cross-regional electricity transmission carbon emission (Scope 2) accounting The scope 2 emission can be calculated based on electricity production and supply, and the purchase and output of electricity. Here, we calculated the scope 2 emission by using the cross-regional electricity (imported electricity) multiplied by the emission factors (emission per unit of electricity consumption).
