Information is as reported to the Clean Energy Regulator as at 18 August 2016.
Corporations registered under the
National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (NGER Act) are required to report greenhouse gas emissions, and energy production and consumption to the Clean Energy Regulator, by 31 October each year.
By 28 February each year, the Clean Energy Regulator publishes a point-in-time extract of scope 1, scope 2 emissions and energy production data specific to the electricity sector.
Unlike the corporate emissions and energy data set, which is published at a controlling corporation level, the electricity sector emissions and production data set is published at a designated generation facility level.
A designated generation facility, is a facility whose principle activity is electricity production. Facilities that generate electricity for their own use or as a secondary activity are not considered a designated generation facility and therefore not included in this publication. This publication also excludes facilities that form part of a vertically-integrated production process.
This extract reflects a point-in-time picture of Australia’s emissions and energy production from the electricity sector in 2012-13 and is subject to change based on ongoing regulation of compliance.
Notes about this publication
Information as reported: The information contained in this publication is as reported by controlling corporations.
Cells with ‘0’ values: Cells with ‘0’ value reflect instances where controlling corporations have reported zero scope 1 or scope 2 emissions.
Joint ventures: In some circumstances joint venture partners are required to report a full amount for each facility they have in a joint venture. This results in that facility appearing twice.
Responsibility for more than one designated generation facility: In cases where a corporation has responsibility for two or more designated generation facilities and energy and emissions information is included in a report under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting scheme, the Clean Energy Regulator is required to publish both facility specific information and corporate totals.
Revisions: The Clean Energy Regulator may periodically republish National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting data to reflect the most up to date information available and in line with ongoing regulation of compliance.
Reasonable care: The Clean Energy Regulator takes all reasonable efforts to ensure the information published on its website is accurate at the time of publication.
The original data was published on 26 February 2014 and represents data as reported to the Clean Energy Regulator as at 25 February 2014.
The revised data was published on 30 September 2016 and represents data reported to the Clean Energy Regulator as at 18 August 2016:
Data was republished on 27 October 2017 and represents data as reported to the Clean Energy Regulator as at 18 October 2017.
