Under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Scheme, corporations that meet certain thresholds must report to the Clean Energy Regulator their emissions, energy production and energy consumption each financial year. This data informs government policy, programs and activities, and helps meet Australia’s international reporting obligations.
By 28 February each year, the Clean Energy Regulator publishes information about registered corporations, reporting transfer certificate holders, designated generation facilities, the National Greenhouse and Energy Register, and GreenPower and renewable energy certificates.
The National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting scheme does not collect or publish data on emissions from the agriculture, land use, land use change, forestry, private vehicle transport and residential sectors. Emissions from these sectors are captured in the National Greenhouse Accounts.
For more information about the data that is published each year, see the data highlights.
Under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting scheme, we will only publish data about registered corporations above certain thresholds. This is referred to as the publication threshold.
The publication threshold determines that the Clean Energy Regulator will publish information about registered corporations:
that have combined scope 1 and scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions equal to or greater than 50 kilotonnes CO2-e, and
that are reporting transfer certificate holders with:
greenhouse gas emissions with a carbon dioxide equivalence of 25 kilotonnes CO2-e or more, or
production of energy of 100 terajoules or more, or
consumption of energy of 100 terajoules or more.
The Clean Energy Regulator is also required to publish information about facilities identified as electricity generators.
Under section 25 of the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007, registered corporations may also apply to have all or part of their reported greenhouse gas emissions and energy production and consumption totals withheld from publication.
