-To integrate the methodology which is described in Chapter ​7.3.1 FIXME into CAPRI, two parts are required for each single energy input component: an activity-specific,​ regionalized consumption quantity and an equivalent assessment factor. The following chapters present both parts for each input component integrated into CAPRI.+To integrate the methodology which is described in Chapter ​[[Farm Structure Units – FSU#​Delineation]] ​into CAPRI, two parts are required for each single energy input component: an activity-specific,​ regionalized consumption quantity and an equivalent assessment factor.

-Electricity consumption plays a major role in animal production activities and drying cereals. Like diesel, data on electricity use is not included in CAPRI. Therefore a normative approach has been chosen to quantify consumption levels. Concerning housing systems, a distinction between the different activities has been made as well as a grouping of the EU countries in “North”,​ “Middle” and “South” to reflect the different requirements for heating and cooling. Charges in electricity use then have been set activity-specific and to a minor extent, depending on the herd sizes. Those charges are calculated on an animal-place basis. Electricity requirements for milk cooling are based on the CAPRI milk yield. Consumption quantities are taken from literature sources and calculations of Agroscope ART in Swit-zerland (Project BW04). Electricity used in grain drying is based on a normative approach due to lack of data of drying systems in the EU. Nevertheless,​ consumption quantities for drying are linked to the harvest moisture content as described in Chapter 7.5.2.11. Furthermore,​ electricity use in greenhouses is considered. This is expressed depending on the lighting and heating efforts, as far as by using electricity. Small quantities of electricity are charged for lighting and ventilation in storage facilities for feeding stuff.+Electricity consumption plays a major role in animal production activities and drying cereals.
