1 Il valore della disponibilità degli impianti viene calcolata nel modo seguente:
- “load factor” per gli impianti eolici rappresenta il rapporto tra la produzione effettiva rispetto alla produzione massima teorica (calcolata tenendo conto della effettiva entrata in esercizio di ogni singolo parco eolico);
- il “rendimento globale di 1° principio” per l’impianto termoelettrico è calcolato in accordo con le procedure previste dal D.M. 5/9/2011 (CAR).
2 ERG Power non gode di allocazioni gratuite di quote CO2 ai sensi del regolamento EU-ETS.

METHOD FOR ESTIMATING HOURS WORKED - THIRD-PARTY COMPANIES The hours worked by the employees of third-party companies have been estimated differently according to the technology involved. Hydro, Power, Wind plants Italy and Office: manual recording of the hours worked.
Wind plants abroad: estimated hours worked, given the technical impossibility of recording the presence of O&M contractors with global service agreements, is based on the assumption that one FTE can service 15 MW, multiplied by workable days (260) and by 8 hours.
Plants under construction in the UK: hours recorded according to site report.
METHOD FOR CALCULATING DAYS LOST DUE TO INJURIES - THIRD-PARTY COMPANIES
Report sent by the company of the injured worker.
