New release of the Small Emitters Tool (SET) and the ICAO CO2 Estimation and Reporting Tool (CERT)
Small Emitters Tool (SET)
On 14th of December 2020, the 2020 SET version was released (version 5.10). This new version does not include any new features, but the underpinning methodology has been updated based on the latest characteristics of the air traffic covered by the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS).
As a reminder, the SET is an emissions estimation tool developed by Eurocontrol as a means for estimating emissions in case of data gaps and for operators eligible to use it as a main monitoring method.
It is important to keep in mind that it is mandatory to use the latest version of the tool to estimate the 2020 fuel consumption and emissions.
The latest version of the tool can be downloaded from the SET website.
ICAO CO2 Estimation and Reporting Tool (CERT)
On December 21st 2020, the 2020 version ICAO CERT version was released. In terms of core functionalities, the 2020 CERT is just like the 2019 version of the ICAO CERT. The identification of routes subject to offsetting requirements will be only available starting with the 2021 version of the ICAO CERT.
Nevertheless, this new version of the ICAO CERT does bring in some additional capabilities, such as the possibility to check airport coordinates on Google Maps. Furthermore, the 2020 version also includes 15 more aircraft types such as the A330-800neo (A338), A330-900neo (A339), E190-E2 (E290), E195-E2 (E295), A220-100 (BCS1) or A220-200 (BCS3), the latter two formerly known as Bombardier C-Series. Of course, it is worth noting that all bugs identified in the 2019 version of the ICAO CERT, such as the lack of information on errors in some cases or the incorrect state attribution for airports located in Venezuela, have been corrected.
It is important to keep in mind that it is mandatory to use the latest version of the tool to estimate the 2020 CO2 emissions.
The latest version of the tool and its associated documentation (i.e., templates, tutorial, or technical document on the development of the tool) can be downloaded from the ICAO CERT website.
