Typeentity
Short nameRenewableEnergyGeneratedOnsiteorOffsite
Description

The field in this entity contains data about the renewable energy generated on or off site, either by the HEP independently or in partnership with others.

Applicable toEngland Northern Ireland Scotland Wales
Coverage

All higher education providers (HEPs).

Notes

The annual energy (kWh equivalent) generated through renewable energy sources. Typically this may include energy derived from:

  • biomass-fuelled boilers,
  • solar electric panels (photovoltaics),
  • solar thermal panels (solar water heating),
  • wind turbines,
  • ground source heat pumps,
  • other.

All energy generated does not need to be consumed by the individual HEP as some energy may be sold to third parties.

The relevant energy need not be produced on freehold land and therefore may be produced on land that is leased or held on licence.

Where energy generated is not metered or measured it should not be counted.

Electricity supplied through 'green tariffs' should not be included except in exceptional circumstances where an HEP can demonstrate that the renewable electricity is additional to a utility's statutory requirement for renewable energy generation (i.e. where the Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs) have been retained).
