Guidance for Anaerobic Digestion generators: SEG sustainability criteria and reporting requirements


Publication date

Scheme name


The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) makes sure that small-scale low-carbon generators receive payment for any electricity they export to the grid. The scheme requires licensed electricity suppliers to offer export tariffs to anaerobic digestion (AD), hydro, onshore wind, and solar photovoltaic (PV) generators with a total installed capacity up to 5MW, and micro-combined heat and power (m-CHP) with an electrical capacity of 50kW or less, provieded they meet the SEG criteria. Smart export metering is an essential part of this new policy.
