- US: CO2 6,750,000 / 4,256,100 GWh=1.59 tons of CO2 per GWh
- Germany: CO2-810,000 / 617,600 GWh=1.31 tons of CO2 per GWh
It's certainly better than the US, but considering this big push the Germany is in for clean energy and the US is only half-ass moving in that direction, I'm a little surprised it is as close as it is.
This is because Germany now uses coal power plants instead of nuclear plants to produce the necessary electricity.
France is on the better side of this by far at: CO2-370,000 / 560,500 GWh=0.66 tons of CO2 per GWh
How surprising, nuclear energy is green energy.
