      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 section 2.C.2 of the GHGRP and the WCI Method WCI.214,
      HHVi
      is the higher heating value for each biomass fuel type “i” combusted in the facility for electricity generation in accordance with sections 2.C.1 and 2.C.3. of the GHGRP and the WCI Method WCI.214, 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 section 2.C.2 of the GHGRP;

      • (b) for a liquid fuel, the volume of the fuel combusted, expressed in kL and measured in accordance with section 2.C.2. of the GHGRP; and

      • (c) for a gaseous fuel, the volume of the fuel combusted, expressed in standard cubic metres and measured in accordance with section 2.C.2 of the GHGRP 2.C.2.
