Abstract
These Regulations transpose for Ireland Article 7a and a number of related provisions of Directive 98/70/EC, as amended by Directive 2009/30/EC. Article 7a of the Directive (as inserted by 2009/30/EC) introduces an obligation on fuel suppliers to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that fuels cause over their life-cycle i.e. when they are refined, transported and used. These Regulations set a target for the reduction of life cycle greenhouse gas emissions per unit of energy from fuel and energy supplied and lay down rules on calculation methods and reporting requirements. The National Oil Reserves Agency (NORA) shall designate the supplier or suppliers responsible for monitoring and reporting life cycle greenhouse gas emissions per unit of energy from fuel and energy supplied. Suppliers shall reduce life cycle greenhouse gas emissions per unit of energy from fuel and energy supplied as prescribed and shall report to NORA.
