The National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) scheme is a single national framework for corporations to report greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption and production. Each year, Australian corporations that meet certain thresholds must report their emissions and energy information under the scheme. 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.
Some key highlights from the 2014-15 National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting publication include:
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 total scope 1 emissions for all grid connected generators.
In 2014-15 total scope one emissions from grid connected generators is 176.1 million tonnes (carbon dioxide equivalent).
A series of factsheets is available, which focuses on some of the key data sets released as part of the 2014-15 NGER data publication.
Note: In considering total emissions between years, it is important to note that each year there are minor changes to the
