DIVISION 3Secondary Industrial Activity – Quantification of Production

  • 3 If a covered facility uses only one fossil fuel to generate electricity, production of electricity is quantified in Gigawatt hours of gross electricity generated through the use of fossil fuels.

    • 4 (1) If a covered facility uses a mixture of fossil fuels or a mixture of biomass and fossil fuels to generate electricity, the gross electricity generated by the facility is to be determined separately for the gaseous fuels, liquid fuels and solid fuels in accordance with the following formula and expressed in Gigawatt hours:

      Gu is multiplied by a quotient where the numerator is HFFk, and the denominator is HB plus the summation of HFFk for each gaseous fuels, liquid fuels and solid fuels “k”

      where

      GU
      is the gross quantity of electricity generated by the covered facility during the compliance period, expressed in Gigawatt hours;
      HFFk
      is determined in accordance with the following formula, calculated separately for gaseous fuels, liquid fuels and solid fuels type “k”:
      The summation of the products of QFFj and HHVj for each fossil fuel type “j”

      where

      QFFj
      is the quantity of gaseous, liquid or solid fuel, as the case may be, type “j” combusted in the facility for electricity generation during the compliance period, determined under subsection (2) and in accordance with Quantification Methods,
      HHVj
      is the higher heating value of the gaseous, liquid or solid fuel, as the case may be, type “j” combusted in the facility for electricity generation determined in accordance with Quantification Methods, and
      j
      is the jth fossil fuel type combusted in the facility, where “j” goes from 1 to m and where m is the number of types of gaseous, liquid or solid fuels combusted, as the case may be; and
      HB
      is determined in accordance with the formula
      The summation of the products of QBi and HHVi for each biomass fuel type “i”

      where

      QBi
      is the quantity of biomass fuel type “i” combusted in the facility for electricity generation during the compliance period, determined in accordance with subsection (2) and with Quantification Methods,
      HHVi
      is the higher heating value for each biomass fuel type “i” combusted in the facility for electricity generation in accordance with Quantification Methods, and
      i
      is the ith biomass fuel type combusted in the facility, where “i” goes from 1 to n and where n is the number of types of biomass fuels combusted.
    • (2) The quantity of fuel for QFFj and QBi is determined on the following basis:

      • (a) for a solid fuel, the mass of the fuel combusted, on a wet or dry basis, expressed in tonnes and measured in accordance with Quantification Methods;

      • (b) for a liquid fuel, the volume of the fuel combusted, expressed in kL and measured in accordance with Quantification Methods; and

      • (c) for a gaseous fuel, the volume of the fuel combusted, expressed in standard cubic metres and measured in accordance with Quantification Methods.
