Asked by: Liam Kerr, North East Scotland, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
Date lodged: 22 November 2021

Question

To ask the Scottish Government what quantity of CO2 emissions has each operational gas-fired power station generated in each year of production.

Current status: Answered by Michael Matheson on 10 December 2021


Answer

As part of demonstrating compliance with the EU Emissions Trading System relevant installations must submit verified emissions data. The information for CO2 Equivalent (e) emissions from Scottish Installations for the period 2008-2020 is published online. Peterhead is the only Scottish gas fired power station, however there are other facilities such as at Grangemouth that occasionally may provide electricity to the grid.
