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>In winter 2014/151 around 11.6% of the electricity generated in the UK was sourced from wind.2 Along with other forms of low-carbon generation, this helps put downward pressure on wholesale electricity prices, helping to offset some of the costs of supporting renewable generation on final energy bills. DECC estimates that wholesale electricity prices were around £1/MWh lower (equivalent to £5 lower for an average household energy bill) in 2014 than they would have been in the absence of policies to support investment in low-carbon generation, and reduce electricity demand. In 2020, wholesale electricity prices are estimated to be around £4/MWh lower (or £12 lower for an average household energy bill) than they would be in the absence of the same policies.3</p><p> </p><p> </p><p><em><strong>[1]</strong></em><em> Defined as the period Q4 2014 to Q1 2015</em></p><p><em>2</em><em> Source: DECC Energy Trends</em></p><p><em>3</em><em> All figures are real 2014 prices.
