Usage Guidance

  • This metric is intended to capture energy generated for commercial sale by the organization. Bulk energy is usually sold under a power purchase agreement with an electricity utility. The buyer or purchaser of this energy is referred to as the offtaker.
  • Organizations interested in reporting on energy production at a product level should report against Energy Capacity of Products Sold (PD1504) and/or Energy Capacity of Product (PD2713).
  • Organizations that want to report on the amount of energy generated for the organization's own use should report against Energy Generated for Use: Total (OI9624).
