EUETS Sub-Group

As you may know, there has been uncertainty within the UK as to whether data centres are covered under the EU ETS (European Emissions Trading Scheme).

As EU ETS is aimed at large scope 1 emitters and therefore only covers fuels that are burned (oil, coal etc), one could be forgiven for thinking that data centres would not be troubled by this legislation. However, facilities with standby power provisioning of 7MVA or 7MW and above could be caught under EU ETS, depending on the exact characteristics of the generator array. This is because EU ETS obligations are defined by generating capacity not by emissions.

This group is for those who want to find out more about EU ETS for data centres, establish whether you are obliged or not and be included in the discussion and joint policy activities.

This is an ad-hoc working group open to all techUK members.
