This database accompanies the JRC Report EUR 27215 EN. The database contains all the input numbers and sources used for the calculations of the typical and default GHG emission values presented in Annex VI of of the Proposal for a Recast of the Renewable Energy Directive COM(2016) 767. It also contains: i) final GHG emissions results, ii) all sources for the Figures in JRC EUR 27215 EN, iii) several worksheets with tools for the customization of the results. Stakeholders can use the database to get a deeper insight into the values contained in Annex VI, but also can use the various tools in the file to exploit the many flexibilities offered in the Proposal to produce customized default GHG values (e.g. specific conversion efficiencies, co-generation plants, co-digestion mixtures etc…). Contacts are provided in the file in case of queries on the values and errors in the file. This file contains the values exactly as reported in the Annex VI of the Proposal (published in November 2016). In case of changes to the values before the policy approval, new versions of the file will be uploaded.

The Commission's legislative proposal for a recast of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED-recast) (COM(2016) 767), in Art. 26(7), specifies the minimum greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions saving thresholds that bioenergy must comply with in order to count towards the renewables targets and to be eligible for public support. Annex V (liquid biofuels) and Annex VI (solid and gaseous biomass) of the RED-Recast describe the methodology for GHG savings calculations needed to comply with the GHG criteria. They also provide a list of Default GHG emission values, aggregated and disaggregated, that operators can use to demonstrate compliance of their product with the GHG criteria. This report describes the input data, assumptions and methodological approach applied by the JRC when compiling the updated dataset used to calculate GHG emissions for the different biomass pathways. The GHG emissions resulting from the application of the methodology from COM(2016) 767, and presented in Annex VI of the document, are also shown. The report aims to provide operators, stakeholders ,and the scientific community all the necessary information to explain the assumptions chosen as well as to guarantee reproducibility of the results. Additional analysis to test the sensitivity of the results to various assumptions is presented in the final section of the report.
