Renewable energy - electricity generation SDA

Hi there,

Apologies if I have missed this in any of the guidance documents, when setting an SDA target for electricity generation, is it acceptable to use zero gCO2/kWh for renewable energy, or should a value from an LCA be used such as 13gCO2/kWh?

Thanks
Vicky

Hi there - just wondering if there were any thoughts on the above query relating to renewable energy? Thanks!

Hi all, both approaches are acceptable. Many companies and FIs will use a zero value for their intensity metric if they are using RE and this is acceptable under the SDA method.
However, we also encourage as accurate data as possible and therefore you can use the LCA EFs for REs
