This data recognises the impact voluntary renewable energy purchases by registered corporations, such as GreenPower, has in reducing their scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions. A corporation's offset scope 2 emissions total only takes into account renewable energy certificates that are voluntarily surrendered.
Each year we publish:
This information is provided voluntarily by scheme reporters and is not required under the
National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007. It is important to note that the data published under the NGER scheme for GreenPower represents a portion of voluntary surrender across the market, and does not capture transactions reported under the
Renewable Energy Target.
In 2022, the agency will publish the pilot Corporate Emissions Reduction Transparency (CERT) report. The CERT report supports climate-related disclosures by NGER reporters, including showing steps taken by reporters to support the use of renewable energy. It is expected that the CERT report will replace this publication of GreenPower and renewable energy certificates from 2022-23, onwards.

Offset scope 2 emissions totals are calculated by a corporation deducting electricity that it has purchased using either GreenPower and/or renewable energy certificates, from its total electricity consumption. This net electricity consumption figure is then used to calculate an offset total for the corporation's total scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions.
