Title Electricity generation by a biomass power plant
Summaries GHG emission reduction measures : Displacement of grid electricity including national/regional and isolated grid and/or captive electricity by installing and operating a biomass power plant.
Calculation of reference emissions : Reference emissions are calculated from net electricity generation by a biomass power plant multiplied by a CO2 emission factor of grid electricity and/or captive electricity.
Calculation of project emissions : Project emissions include the emissions from combustion of solid biomass fuels in a biomass power plant, the emissions from combustion of fossil fuel at a biomass power plant and the emissions from transportation of solid biomass fuels. The emissions resulting from combustion of solid biomass fuels are zero since they are carbon neutral. The emissions from combustion of fossil fuel at a biomass power plant are calculated from the amount of fossil fuel consumption and a CO2 emission factor of the fuel. The emissions from transportation of solid biomass fuels are calculated from the amount of fossil fuel consumption by the transportation and a CO2 emission factor of the fuel, if applicable. If not applicable, the emissions from transportation of solid biomass fuels are calculated from total mass of freight transported from each collecting site and distance between each collecting site and a biomass power plant.
Monitoring parameters : Net quantity of electricity generated by a biomass power plant; On-site consumption of fossil fuel for operating a biomass power plant; Consumption of fossil fuel by transportation, if applicable; Round trip distance between collecting site and a biomass power plant, if applicable; Total mass of freight transported from collecting site, if applicable
