2014-15 national greenhouse and energy information is now available

26 February 2016

The Clean Energy Regulator today released the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) data for 2014-15.  

Each year, Australian corporations that meet certain thresholds are required to report their emissions and energy information to the Clean Energy Regulator. This captures about 60 per cent of Australia’s total emissions. Emissions from the agricultural, forestry, private vehicle transport and residential sectors are not collected under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting scheme and therefore not included in this data.​

In 2014-15, corporations reported a total of: 

  • 322 million tonnes of scope 1 greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide equivalent)
  • 91 million tonnes of scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide equivalent), and
  • 5422 petajoules of net energy consumed.

We have for the first time published additional data specific to the electricity sector for 2014-15. This will provide transparency and ensure industry are informed and well prepared for the introduction of the safeguard mechanism on 1 July 2016. Additional data includes primary fuel source, emissions intensity and grid connection for each electricity generator, in addition to aggregated scope 1 emissions for all grid connected generators. 

Data collected under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting scheme provides a rich and reliable data set that helps us to better understand greenhouse gas emissions, energy production and use across Australia in 2014-15.

See 2014-15 National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting highlights​  for more information.
