return to field list
Short nameE12CEBF

This field contains data about scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions from biofuels. The value can be recorded to three decimal places.

Applicable toEngland Northern Ireland Scotland Wales

All higher education institutions (HEIs).

UnitKilograms of equivalent carbon dioxide (kg CO2e)

Total scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions from biofuels (Kg CO2 per litre) for the whole estate.

If a figure was returned under Energy consumption biofuels (kWh), higher education institutions (HEIs) will need to calculate the scope 1 and 2 emissions.

The consumption figure returned by the HEI should be broken down by the type of biofuel, the component figures multiplied by the corresponding Defra conversion factors to produce the scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions. The sum of these should then be returned in this field.

The Defra conversion factors and guidance to support HEIs in returning this field can be found in the downloadable Excel spreadsheet, under the ‘Bioenergy’ tab.
