Clean fuel regulations : quantification method for low carbon-intensity electricity integration.: En4-419/2-2020E-PDF

"This quantification method (QM) is intended for use by participants applying to have a CO2e Emissions Reduction or Removal Project recognized to create credits under the proposed Clean Fuel Regulations (proposed Regulations). Credits can be created under the proposed Regulations with this quantification method through the integration of Low Carbon-Intensity (CI) Electricity Sites. These sites convert the energy from low CI energy sources into electrical energy as the end product, and supply that electricity to a facility that produces, processes, stores, transports or distributes fossil fuel products (Fossil Fuel Facility). Emission reductions are quantified based on the amount of electricity from either fossil fuel-based sources or purchased from the electrical network that is replaced with low carbon-intensity electricity consumed by the Fossil Fuel Facility. Emission reductions in this quantification method are calculated based on a life cycle approach, as life cycle carbon intensities are used to account for the emissions associated with the electricity"--Introduction, page 5.
