http://www.ghgprotocol.org/ The Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) is the
most widely used international accounting tool for government and
business leaders to understand, quantify, and manage greenhouse gas
emissions. The GHG Protocol, a decade-long partnership between the World Resources Institute and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development,
is working with businesses, governments, and environmental groups
around the world to build a new generation of credible and effective
programs for tackling climate change.
It provides the accounting framework for nearly every GHG standard
and program in the world - from the International Standards Organization
to The Climate Registry - as well as hundreds of GHG inventories
prepared by individual companies.
The GHG Protocol also offers developing countries an internationally
accepted management tool to help their businesses to compete in the
global marketplace and their governments to make informed decisions
As the UK solar market progressed past the gigawatt mark the term “grid
parity” begun to creep into industry players’ lexicon, with many

energy mix in the next few years. But, is this concept actually
realistic in the UK, or is the idea of installing solar panels without a
subsidy completely out of reach?
