Estates Management record 2013/14 - Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions biomass
Estates Management record 2013/14
Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions biomass
return to field list
This field contains data about scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions from biomass. The value can be recorded to three decimal places.
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
All higher education providers (HEPs).
|Unit||Kilograms of equivalent carbon dioxide (kg CO2e)|
Total scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions from biomass (Kg CO2 per litre) for the whole estate.
If a figure was returned under Energy consumption biomass (kWh), higher education providers (HEPs) will need to calculate the scope 1 and 2 emissions.
The consumption figure returned by the HEP should be broken down by the type of biomass, 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 HEPs in returning this field can be found in the downloadable Excel spreadsheet, under the ‘Bioenergy’ tab.
|Mandatory for||England Northern Ireland Wales|
Quality rules relating to this field are displayed here.
|Reason required||For advice to Government, monitoring progress towards sector carbon targets and for use in producing Capital Investment Framework (CIF) metrics.|
Data type: LENGTH12DECIMAL3Type
|Change management notes||Guidance amended in the Notes section, explaining that HEPs will need to calculate the scope 1 and 2 emissions as the Defra conversion factor is dependent upon the type of biomass consumed.|
