Report: Draft Specifications for Application of UNFC-2009 to Renewable Energy Resources

Abstract

The purpose of this document is to enable the application of the United Nations Framework Classification for Fossil Energy and Mineral Reserves and Resources 2009 (UNFC-2009), incorporating Specifications for its Application (as set out in ECE Energy Series No. 42), to Renewable Energy Resources. The existing Generic Specifications are repeated in Part IV for consistency and additional context for application to Renewable Energy Resources is provided where deemed necessary. The intended use of this document is in conjunction with the UNFC-2009 and its Generic Specifications. These specifications represent “rules of application” of the UNFC-2009 for Renewable Energy. The United Nations Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) definition of Renewable Energy is adopted in this document:

“Renewable energy is energy that is derived from natural processes (e.g. sunlight and wind) that are replenished at a higher rate than they are consumed. Solar, wind, geothermal, hydro2, and biomass are common sources of renewable energy”.
