‘Scottish Standards for carbon accounting of energy generation’ workshop | Presentation and Minutes

Wednesday 21 November 2012, Paterson’s Land, University of Edinburgh

This workshop discussed best current practice in carbon accounting for life cycle carbon emissions from large-scale power infrastructure and the operational impacts of the relationship between different generation technologies on a distribution network.

Key issues were introduced which covered: the harmonisation process developed by NREL and how it’s methodology can be applied to developing frameworks; continued challenges in creating a standard framework; and grid and wind interaction through looking at marginal carbon offsets of wind power.
