      • (i) their name, title and civic address, and

      • (ii) an indication of whether they are the owner or operator;

    • (b) the unit’s name and civic address, if any;

    • (c) the unit’s registration number, if any;

    • (d) the name of the facility where the unit is located;

    • (e) the facility’s National Pollutant Release Inventory identification number assigned by the Minister for the purposes of section 48 of the Act, if any;

    • (f) the unit’s registration number, if any, assigned by the Minister under subsection 4(2) of the Reduction of Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Coal-fired Generation of Electricity Regulations;

    • (g) whether the unit is a boiler unit or a combustion engine unit;

    • (h) a process flow diagram that shows

      • (i) the unit’s major equipment that operates together to generate electricity and, if applicable, produce thermal energy, including boilers, combustion engines, duct burners and other combustion devices, heat recovery systems, steam turbines, generators and emission control devices,

      • (ii) the unit boundaries used to identify the unit,

      • (iii) the electric flows crossing the unit boundaries, and

      • (iv) the heat streams crossing the unit boundaries and an indication of their average temperature, pressure and hourly mass flow rate;

    • (i) the unit’s capacity;

    • (j) for each of the unit’s combustion engines, the engine capacity and the date on which each combustion engine was installed, and in the case of combustion engine with a capacity of 150 MW or less, a statement that, if applicable, the combustion engine was installed to replace an engine, with a capacity of 150 MW or less, as part of repair or maintenance;

    • (k) the unit’s potential electrical output for the calendar year, expressed in GWh;

    • (l) as the case may be,

      • (i) in the case of a combustion engine unit, the percentage of the unit’s potential electrical output that is sold or distributed to the electric grid for the calendar year, and

      • (ii) in the case of a boiler unit, the quantity of electricity that is sold or distributed to the electric grid for the calendar year;

    • (m) the percentage of the unit’s heat input that comes from natural gas, on average for the calendar year; and

    • (n) in the case of a boiler unit, the value of the unit’s heat to electricity ratio.

  • 3 The following information respecting the emission intensity referred to in subsection 4(1) or (2) of these Regulations resulting from the combustion of fossil fuel in the unit during the calendar year:

    • (a) the emission intensity for the unit — that is, the ratio of the quantity of CO2 emissions referred to in paragraph (c) to the quantity of energy referred to in subparagraph (b)(i) — expressed in tonnes per GWh;

    • (b) in respect of the quantity of energy produced by the unit,

      • (i) that quantity determined in accordance with section 11 of these Regulations, expressed in GWh,

      • (ii) the value determined for G and Hpnet in the formula set out in subsection 11(1) of these Regulations, expressed in GWh, and

      • (iii) the value determined for Gce, Gs and Gext in the formula set out in subsection 11(2) of these Regulations, expressed in GWh;

    • (c) in respect of the quantity of CO2 emissions from the combustion of fuels in the unit,

      • (i) if paragraph 12(a) of these Regulations applies, the result of the calculation made in accordance with section 13 or 14 and, if applicable, section 15 of these Regulations, expressed in tonnes, and

      • (ii) if paragraph 12(b) of these Regulations applies, the result of the calculation made in accordance with sections 17 and 18 of these Regulations, expressed in tonnes; and

    • (d) for each type of fuel combusted,

      • (i) the type and, if that type is biomass, an explanation of why that type is biomass as defined in subsection 2(1) of these Regulations, and

      • (ii) the quantity of fuel combusted.

  • 4 The following information:

    • (a) in the case of a unit that is granted an exemption under paragraph 7(4)(a) of these Regulations, the duration of the emergency circumstance, such as the date on which the circumstance arose and the date on which it ceased; and

    • (b) in the case of a unit referred to in subsection 4(4) of these Regulations that is temporarily connected to one or more replacement combustion engines,

      • (i) the duration of the repairs or maintenance, such as the day in the calendar year on which the repairs or maintenance began and the day in the calendar year on which they ended, and

      • (ii) the reason why the replacement combustion engine was used.

  • 5 A copy of the auditor’s report referred to in subsection 16(2) of these Regulations.

  • 6 The following information respecting the replacement data referred to in section 20 of these Regulations that were used for a given period during the calendar year, if applicable:

    • (a) the reason why data required to determine the value of an element of a formula referred to in section 11, 17 or 18 of these Regulations was not obtained and an explanation why that reason was beyond the responsible person’s control;

    • (b) the element of the formula for which data was not obtained and the date of the day on which the data were not obtained and, if that data were not obtained for a period of several days, the dates of the days on which the period begins and ends; and
