Reduction of Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Coal-fired Generation of Electricity Regulations

Version of section 19 from 2015-07-01 to 2018-11-29:


Marginal note:Electricity

  •  (1) The quantity of electricity referred to in paragraph 3(2)(a) is to be determined in accordance with the following formula:

    Ggross – Gaux

    where

    Ggross
    is the gross quantity of electricity that is produced by the unit during the calendar year, expressed in GWh and measured at the electrical terminals of the generators of the unit using meters that comply with the requirements of the Electricity and Gas Inspection Act and the Electricity and Gas Inspection Regulations; and
    Gaux
    is the quantity of electricity that is used by the power plant in which the unit is located during the calendar year to operate infrastructure and equipment that is attributed to the unit for electricity generation and for separation, but not for pressurization, of CO2, expressed in GWh , determined in accordance with an appropriate method of attribution, based on data collected using meters that comply with the requirements of the Electricity and Gas Inspection Act and the Electricity and Gas Inspection Regulations.
  • Marginal note:Same method of attribution in subsequent years

    (2) Once a method of attribution is used to make the determination referred to in the description of Gaux for a calendar year, that method of attribution must be used to make that determination for every subsequent calendar year, unless

    • (a) during a subsequent calendar year, a unit located at the power plant ceases to produce electricity or a new unit is added to those located at the power plant; or

    • (b) during a subsequent calendar year, the operation of any unit located at the power plant is integrated with a carbon capture and storage system.

  • Marginal note:Change of method of attribution

    (3) If paragraph (2)(a) or (b) applies in a subsequent calendar year, the responsible person must, when making the determination referred to in the description of Gaux in subsection (1) for that subsequent calendar year, use a method of attribution that is appropriate to the circumstances described in that paragraph. Subsection (2) applies in respect of that appropriate method of attribution and that subsequent calendar year as if they were, respectively, the method of attribution and the calendar year referred to in that subsection.
