UK Biomass & Biogas Carbon Calculator

A calculator developed by E4Tech, with support from the Environment Agency, the Department of Energy and Climate Change and the NNFCC, and made available by Ofgem.

The UK Biomass and Biogas Carbon Calculator is developed for calculating carbon intensity and greenhouse gas (GHG) saving of solid biomass and biogas used for electricity and heat generation. The UK Biomass & Biogas Carbon Calculator incorporates the calculation methodology set out in the Renewable Energy Directive1, taking account of the recommendations set out by the European Commission in their report on sustainability requirements for solid and gaseous biomass2. The tool is designed to assist in calculating the final GHG emission saving that should be reported to Ofgem.
