Generator additional guidance
Technical Clarification Number
Refer to the latest tables for emissions requirements from the United States EPA Tier 3 Non-Road Engine Emission Requirements on their website for Generators: http://www.epa.gov/OMS/standards/nonroad/nonroadci.htm
In cases where Tier 3 is not yet ratified (and not shown in their tables) for a particular size generator, the generator must comply with the Tier 2 standards given in the EPA tables. As at December 2009, The European Stage IIIA standard is limited to generators below 560kW. Note that compliance with European Directive 2004/26/EC Stage IIIA is equivalent to compliance with the EPA Tier 3 standard.

Alternative emission standard
Credit Interpretation Request Number
The Credit Interpretation Request (CIR) to deem the German 'TA Luft 2002' emission standard equivalent to the United States EPA Tier 3 emissions standard is granted conditionally on the project's ability to demonstrate the generator(s) compliance with all applicable pollutant (i.e. CO, PM and NOx) emission limits within the TA Luft 2002 emissions standard for the generator size, irrespective of whether the engine is to be used as an emergency/back-up unit or for the purposes of minimising peak electrical infrastructure load for less than 300 hours per year.
