Question KWh into CO2 emission equivalents

Anybody know where I can find a conversion table that helps convert KWh of electricity consumption into kg og CO2 equivalent depending in the first instance upon country?

I would also like conversion tables based upon discrete energy sources (oil, coal, natural gas etc)

I have only been able to find statistics covering individual countries.

Many thanks,
Stuart

From the list, Natural gas is 0.185kg/KWh
8058720KWh x 0.185kg/KWh = 1,490,863 kg
