Reduction of Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Coal-fired Generation of Electricity Regulations (SOR/2012-167)
These Regulations establish a regime for the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions that result from the production of electricity by means of thermal energy using coal as a fuel, whether in conjunction with other fuels or not.
These Regulations are divided into four Parts as follows:
(a) Part 1 sets out a performance standard for the intensity of CO2 emissions from regulated units and provides for exceptions based on the substitution of units and for temporary exemptions in relation to emergencies and units integrated with carbon capture and storage systems;
(b) Part 2 sets out requirements for the reporting, sending, recording and retention of information;
(c) Part 3 sets out quantification rules for determining the intensity of CO2 emissions from regulated units; and
(d) Part 4 provides dates for the coming into force of these Regulations and, in particular, delays the coming into force of the performance standard in respect of standby units until January 1, 2030.
