Abstract: The European Reference Life-Cycle Database (ELCD) has been developed by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (DG JRC) and provides core Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) data from front-running EU-level business associations and, where not available, other sources. Within the ELCD, several energy-related data are provided, being energy a major input for almost all the environmental analyses of products or processes. The work consisted of an analysis and a comparison of bioenergy datasets from different databases, considering the ELCD database as the basis for this analysis. The evaluation has been based on the six quality indicators developed within the ILCD handbook: Technological representativeness, Geographical representativeness, Time-related representativeness, Completeness, Precision/Uncertainty, and Methodological appropriateness and consistency. They have been redefined in order to identify key aspects that are involved in both quality and methodological aspects of bioenergy related LCI datasets. Results have shown that, in general terms the ELCD dataset analysed showed a very good performance in many of the criteria and especially in those criteria related to technology representativeness, methodology and completeness. Finally, several aspects where improvements are considered necessary are highlighted through the analysis.
