Carbon offset emission factors handbook (version 1.0)

Description

The Carbon Offset Emission Factors Handbook contains a listing of common emission factors used in the Alberta carbon offset system as well as common quantification methodologies. Common emission factors, provided in section 1, are intended as inputs to formulae provided in approved quantification protocols. Common quantification methods, provided in section 2, are commonly used formulae for quantification of greenhouse gas offsets in Alberta. This section includes both quantification methods and factors required for greenhouse gas offset quantification. Emission factors and methodologies are subject o periodic updates. Updated values are immediately applicable for use in new offset projects. Current projects will be required to transfer to updated factors if they receive a crediting period extension. The project developer is responsible for ensuring the most current version is used for annual project reporting.
