Download the calculator and find out how much CO2 an energy plant will save by switching from gas/coal to pellets.
In Europe efforts are made on a daily basis to fight climate change. One of today's key priority is to drastically cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We face a situation where all possible measures and actions should be carefully taken in consideration in order to complete our long-term goal of a highly energy efficient and low-carbon economy.
It is with this in mind that this calculator provides simple yet powerful information on the potential benefits of replacing current fuels with biomass in a power and/or heat plant. This excel tool has been developed to specifically calculate the CO2 savings in the event of a switch from gas/coal to pellets.
The tool is based on the methodology of the Renewable Energy Directive (REDII). However, the tool is kept intentionally as simple as possible for non-professional users. The objective is NOT to provide a tool for RED compliance but to quantify the climate benefit of bioenergy.
Results will give an approximation as real emission savings vary from one plant to another.
