1. Carbon dioxide (hereinafter - CO2) saving, which is achieved due to reduction of heat energy consumption of public buildings, shall be determined pursuant to the CO2 emission factor - 264 g/kWh (hereinafter - average emission factor).

2. The average emission factor represents the average extent of saving of CO2 per year in order to produce 1 kWh heat energy. The average emission factor is calculated pursuant to the total emissions in Latvia in the conversion sector (boiler houses and cogeneration units), which are applied against the final consumption of the centralised heat energy - the average value during the time period from 2000 until 2007 - by correcting the indicator value by the amount of heating fuel used in cogeneration units and which has been consumed for the generation of electricity, i.e. not taking into account the CO2 emissions that have occurred during electricity generation process.

3. If autonomous heating of a particular building or the centralised heat supply is ensured by a heating fuel with a higher emission factor than the average value of emission factor specified, a project applicant may use the CO2 emission factor of the relevant heating fuel pursuant to the table of this Annex.

4. The average emission factor shall be applied to buildings which are heated using biomass (for example, wood, chipped wood, granules) or which are connected to the centralised heating system, in which the biomass is used for the heat production.

II. Other Emission Factors

5. Actual emissions shall be calculated, using the following formula:

E =Ef × Q

, where

E - emissions (Gg);

Ef - emission factor (Gg/PJ). Emission factor is indicated in the table;

Q - heat consumption (PJ).
