The UK Government has launched its Biomass and Biogas Carbon Calculator, which has been developed by E4tech. The Calculator is designed to help bioenergy producers report to Ofgem for compliance with the requirements of the Renewables Obligation Order. It calculates the greenhouse gas emissions of plants fuelled with solid biomass and biogas based on the calculation methodology set out in the European Commission’s Renewable Energy Directive. E4tech developed the Calculator with input from generators, trade associations and representatives from the farming, forestry and waste sectors. The project is supported by the Environment Agency, the Department of Energy and Climate Change and the NNFCC, and the Calculator is available on Ofgem’s website .
E4tech previously played a leading role in developing a world first carbon reporting scheme for the UK Government’s Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation
and developed the UK Department for Transport’s Carbon Calculator .
