OJ L 158, 10.06.2013 p. 230, with regard to the calculation of the share of energy from renewable sources.

Definitions

§ 4. For the purposes of this Regulation:

1.

Energy from renewable sources: energy from renewable non-fossil energy sources, wind, solar, aerothermal, geothermal, hydrothermal energy, hydropower, biomass, landfill gas, sewage gas and biogas;

2.

Aerothermal energy: energy stored in the form of heat in the ambient air;

3.

Geothermal energy: energy stored in the form of heat below the solid surface of the earth;

4.

Hydrothermal energy: energy stored in the form of heat in surface waters;

5.

Biomass: the biodegradable fraction of products, waste and residues of agriculture of biological origin (including vegetal and animal substances), forestry and related industries, including fisheries and aquaculture, as well as the biodegradable fraction of waste from industry and households;

6.

Gross final energy consumption: energy products used for energy purposes in industry, transport, households, services, including the public services sector, as well as agriculture, forestry and fisheries shall be supplied, including the electricity and heat consumption generated by the energy industry for electricity and heat production, and including the electricity and electricity distribution and transmission; and heat losses;

7.

District heating or cooling: the distribution of thermal energy in the form of steam, hot water or cold liquids from a central source of production through a network to several buildings or installations for the use of space or process heat or cold;

8.

Liquid bioliquids: liquid fuels produced from biomass according to Z 5 and intended for use for energy purposes, with the exception of transport, including electricity, heat and cold;

9.

Biofuels: liquefied or gaseous fuels for transport produced from biomass according to Z 5.

Methodology of calculation

§ 5. (1) The gross final energy consumption from renewable sources shall be calculated as the sum of

1.

the gross final energy consumption of electricity from renewable energy sources,

2.

the gross final energy consumption of heat and cold from renewable energy sources and

3.

the final energy consumption of energy from renewable energy sources in the transport sector.

(2) The share of energy from renewable sources shall be calculated as the gross final energy consumption of energy from renewable sources, divided by the gross final energy consumption of energy from all energy sources, expressed as a percentage.

(3) In the calculation of the share of energy from renewable sources in gross final energy consumption, gas, electricity and hydrogen from renewable sources shall be taken into account only once in accordance with paragraph 1, Z 1, 2 or 3. Agricultural raw materials for biofuels and bioliquids, which meet the sustainability requirements laid down in the Regulation on agricultural raw materials for biofuels and bioliquids, and biofuels, which are the sustainability requirements in accordance with the 2012 fuel regulation, are not taken into account. For the calculation of the quantity of electricity produced from renewable energy sources and consumed in road vehicles with electric drive, this consumption shall be considered to be the 2.5 times the energy content of the electricity supplied from renewable sources. energy sources.

(4) For the purposes of paragraph 1 (1) (1), the gross final energy consumption of electricity produced from renewable energy sources shall be calculated as the quantity of electricity produced from renewable energy sources, excluding electricity generation in Pumped storage power plants through previously pumped-up water. In the case of hybrid plants using both renewable and conventional energy sources, only the electricity share produced from renewable energy sources shall be taken into account. For this purpose, the share of individual energy sources is calculated on the basis of their energy content. Electricity generated from hydroelectric power and wind power shall be taken into account in accordance with the normalisation rules in Appendix 1.

(5) For the purposes of paragraph 1 (2), the gross final energy consumption of energy used for heating and cooling from renewable sources shall be calculated as the amount of district heating and cooling produced from renewable sources, plus consumption Other energy from renewable sources in industry, households, services and agriculture, forestry and fisheries for heating, cooling and process purposes. In the case of hybrid plants using both renewable and conventional energy sources, only the heat and cold components produced from renewable energy sources are taken into account. For this purpose, the share of individual energy sources is calculated on the basis of their energy content. The aerothermal, geothermal and hydrothermal energy used by heat pumps shall be taken into account for the purposes of paragraph 1 (2), provided that the final energy output is the primary energy input required for the operation of the heat pumps clearly exceeds. The amount of heat which may be considered as energy from renewable sources within the meaning of this Regulation shall be calculated in accordance with the method laid down in Appendix 2. Thermal energy produced by passive energy systems in which lower energy consumption is achieved in a passive manner by the construction or by heat generated from renewable energy sources shall be used for the purposes of Paragraph 1 Z 2 is not taken into account.

(6) For the purposes of paragraph 1 (1) (3), the following shall apply to the calculation of the final energy consumption:

1.

in the calculation of the denominator, i.e. total energy consumption in the transport sector, only petrol, diesel fuel, road transport and rail transport used for biofuels and electricity are taken into account;

2.

in the calculation of the meter, that is, the amount of energy consumed in the transport sector from renewable sources, all types of energy from renewable sources used in all modes of transport will be taken into account;

3.

in the calculation of the contribution of electricity produced from renewable energy sources and consumed in all types of electric drive vehicles for the purposes of Z 1 and 2, the average share of electricity shall be: renewable energy sources in Austria, measured two years before the year in question. In addition, the calculation of the quantity of electricity produced from renewable energy sources and consumed in road vehicles with electric drive shall be used as the 2.5 times the energy content of the electricity supplied. renewable energy sources.

(7) The energy content of the fuels referred to in Annex IX to the 2012 Fuel Regulation in the current version shall be the energy content specified in this Annex.

(8) For the calculation of the sector-specific share and the overall share, ensure that the statistical data used for this and the statistical data transmitted to the European Commission in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1099/2008 are: Information is coherent.

Continuity, periodicity, reference period

§ 6. The calculation of the share of energy from renewable sources in accordance with this Regulation shall be drawn up annually by 30 November of each calendar year over the preceding calendar year up to and including the reporting year 2020.

Cost replacement

§ 7. The Federal Minister for Science, Research and Economics and the Federal Minister for Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management have the Federal Institute for an annual cost replacement, for the first time in 2014, in the amount of 2,970 Euro per year. for the purposes of the calculation provided for in this Regulation. This amount will be paid by the Federal Minister for Science, Research and Business, as well as by the Federal Minister for Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, and will be subject to an annual valorisation of 3% from 2015. In 2017, the cost of carrying out the calculation of the share of energy from renewable sources in gross final energy consumption under this Regulation shall be subject to evaluation and, if necessary, by the Federal Minister for Science, Research and Economy, the Federal Minister for Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management and the Federal Minister for Transport, Innovation and Technology in agreement with the Federal Chancellor and the Federal Minister for Finance for the survey years from 2018 onwards. If the evaluation does not result in an increase in costs, the annual 3% valorisation of the costs shall apply until the expiry of this Regulation.

Override

§ 8. This Regulation shall expire on the expiry of 31 December 2021.
