Production-adjusted baseline

Suggested Reading Suggested Reading

NGER​​

A production-adjusted baseline will typically be made after a facility’s calculated baseline or benchmark baseline has expired, upon application by the responsible emitter.

If the responsible emitter does not apply for a production-adjusted baseline, the facility will revert to the baseline determination that was previously in effect. This could be a reported baseline or a previous production-adjusted baseline. In the event that a reported baseline or production-adjusted emissions baseline does not exist, the facility’s baseline will revert to the default baseline emissions number of 

100 000 tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2-e).

How a production adjusted baseline is set 

A production-adjusted baseline is determined using actual production, unlike calculated baselines or benchmark baselines, which are determined based on forecast production. 

The emissions intensity for a production-adjusted baseline is the emissions intensity previously used to set the expired calculated baseline, or otherwise as set out in the Benchmark Emissions-Intensity Index.

Production-adjusted baseline = actual production × emissions intensity

Unlike a calculated baseline or benchmark baseline, a production-adjusted baseline does not expire. It will continue to remain in effect until another baseline determination is made for the facility.​

Applying for a production-adjusted baseline

All applications for a production-adjusted baseline may be received from the day the production-adjusted baseline is to start, through to 31 October after the end of the first financial year to be covered by the baseline.

The earliest possible start date for a production-adjusted baseline is 1 July 2019. The production-adjusted baseline application form will be made available before that date.
