star this property answer text <p>Directive 2009/125/EC established a framework for the setting of ecodesign requirements for energy-related products. In April 2015 Commission Regulation 2015/1185 was published, which provides minimum standards for efficiencies of wood burning stoves placed on the European market from 2022 that will reduce their carbon emissions.</p><p> </p><p>Wood burning stoves that have a back boiler attached are supported through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). The scheme applies only to Great Britain.</p><p> </p><p>Wood burning stoves are treated as having zero emissions for most inventory purposes, given that the biomass combustion releases the carbon captured during the trees’ lifetime; and that this loss of carbon from the forest is already recorded in the forestry section of the emissions inventory.</p><p> </p><p>Different carbon emissions figures are used for lifecycle analysis of biomass – but these often relate to the transportation of the fuel and fuel preparation. Evidence to date suggests the fuel used in wood burning stoves, such as logs, is frequently sourced very locally with minimal preparation, and therefore has a relatively small footprint.</p><p> </p><p>A tool is also available from Ofgem for calculating carbon emissions from biomass. It can be found on the Ofgem website at <a href="https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/publications-and-updates/uk-solid-and-gaseous-biomass-carbon-calculator" target="_blank">https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/publications-and-updates/uk-solid-and-gaseous-biomass-carbon-calculator</a> .</p>

star this property answer text <p>We are delivering our election commitment to end subsidies for new onshore wind. We are seeking to legislate through the Energy Bill to close the renewable obligation (RO) to new onshore wind capacity from 1 April 2016, one year earlier than planned. The Department has published an Impact Assessment (IA) that considers the potential effects of the Government’s proposals to close the RO to new onshore wind early. This contains the information requested and can be viewed on Parliament’s website at:</p><br /><p><a href="http://services.parliament.uk/bills/2015-16/energy.html" target="_blank">http://services.parliament.uk/bills/2015-16/energy.html</a></p><br /><p>Small-scale onshore wind projects up to 5 megawatts in scale are eligible for support under the feed-in-tariff (FITs) scheme. DECC has proposed action, through the FITs review consultation, to control spending and put FITs onto an affordable and sustainable footing. This consultation is now closed and we are considering the responses that we have received. Further information can be found online at the following link, including an IA that considers the potential impact of the Government’s proposals:</p><br /><p><a href="https://econsultation.decc.gov.uk/office-for-renewable-energy-deployment-ored/fit-review-2015" target="_blank">https://econsultation.decc.gov.uk/office-for-renewable-energy-deployment-ored/fit-review-2015</a>.</p>
