NACE Macro-Sector: D - Electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply

Level 2: D35

Level 3: D35.1 D35.3

Level 4: D35.1.1 D35.3.0

Description:
Construction and operation of a facility used for cogeneration of heat/cooling and power from Geothermal Energy


Climate Change Mitigation

Metric and threshold:

Any cogeneration technology can be included in the taxonomy if it can be demonstrated, using an ISO 14067 or a GHG Protocol Product Lifecycle Standard-compliant Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) assessment, that the life cycle impacts for producing 1 kWh of heat/cool and power are below the declining threshold.

Declining threshold: 

The Cogeneration Threshold is the combined heat/cool and power threshold of 100 gCO2e/kWh. This threshold will be reduced every 5 years in line with a net-zero CO2e in 2050 trajectory. The threshold must be met at the point in time when taxonomy approval is sought for the first time. For activities which go beyond 2050, it must be technically feasible to reach net-zero emissions. The full PCF assessment shall be subjected to review.
