Gabi XML files, Importing databases

I'm having an issue obtaining inventory data for the Australian Electricity Mix.
I'm currently doing my final year thesis on energy requirements for wastewater treatment. Following my literature review I have enough information on the energy requirements for each process in kWh/m^3 of wastewater treated in each treatment step. However I'd like to use the Australian Energy Mix to calculate the amounts of CO2, GWP and etc associated with the energy demand in each treatment step. I downloaded the Australian Energy Mix XML file from the Gabi database (see link below) because it was free but I don't know how to use this in openLCA.

Is there an import method I can use for Gabi XML files, or is there another database I can use that is free?

No one at my university knows how to use LCA software, so I'm still very much a beginner at using everything, but I'd really like to learn. I haven't been given any money to purchase expensive databases. ... ii-energy/
