Stationary Combustion

Stationary combustion refers to the combustion of fuels to produce electricity, heat, or motive power using equipment in a fixed location.

Examples of stationary combustion in buildings include furnaces, boilers, burners and internal combustion engines that use fossil fuels such as natural gas, heating oil, coal, and diesel.

In the LGO Protocol, all stationary combustion is reported as a Scope 1 emission.

There are a number of approaches to calculating emissions based on the data that is available at the time of the inventory. To learn more about these approaches, please click on the links below.

Recommended Approach: Known Fuel Use

Alternate Approach 1: Proxy Year Data

Alternative Approach 2: Comparable Facilities and Square Footage
