Registration as a controlling corporation

Reporting transfer certificates

This form is for corporations that meet the reporting transfer test under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (NGER Act) and that have financial control over a facility, to apply for a Reporting Transfer Certificate (RTC) in relation to the facility. Applying for an RTC is voluntary.

Contacts and authorisations

Deregistration

This form is for persons who wish to apply to the Clean Energy Regulator for deregistration. If the application is approved, the applicant’s name will be removed from the National Greenhouse and Energy Register.

Net energy consumption

Registered corporations should use this form to request that the Clean Energy Regulator disclose their net energy consumption via publication of this information on the Clean Energy Regulator website. This form is only to be used for reporting years prior to 2012–2013. From the 2012–13 reporting year, the net energy consumption figure for registered corporations that have met the publication threshold for that financial year will be published on the Clean Energy Regulator’s website by 28 February of the following year.

Threshold estimator and user guide

The threshold estimator is a tool to assist users to self-assess if:

  • a person is likely to be a liable entity under the Clean Energy Act 2011 (the Clean Energy Act), and/or
  • a controlling corporation is likely to have obligations to register and report under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (NGER Act).

The threshold estimator can be used to obtain an estimate of covered emissions, scope 1 and scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions, energy production, and energy consumption based on data entered by the user.

Solid waste calculator and user guide

The solid waste calculator has been designed to help assess the greenhouse gas emissions from landfill operations. The solid waste calculator user guide has been designed to help use the solid waste calculator. Both the calculator and the user guidance have been updated for the 2013–14 NGER reporting year.

NGER wastewater (domestic and commercial) calculator

The NGER domestic and commercial wastewater calculator is designed to assist corporations, liable entities and others to assess the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the treatment of domestic and commercial wastewater. The calculator is designed in accordance with the NGER Regulations 2008 and the methodologies of relevant parts of Chapter 5 of the NGER (Measurement) Determination 2008. The calculator is applicable for the 2008-09 to 2013-14 NGER reporting years.

NGER wastewater (industrial) calculator

The NGER industrial wastewater calculator is designed to assist corporations, liable entities and others to assess the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the treatment of industrial wastewater. The calculator is designed in accordance with the NGER Regulations 2008 and the methodologies of relevant parts of Chapter 5 of the NGER (Measurement) Determination 2008. It is applicable for the 2008-09 to 2013-14 NGER reporting years.

Uncertainty calculators and user guides

The uncertainty calculators have been designed to assist registered corporations in assessing and reporting the uncertainty associated with their scope 1 greenhouse gas emissions under the NGER scheme. The calculations and factors incorporated in the calculators are in accordance with the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Regulations 2008 and the methodologies of Chapter 8 of the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Measurement) Determination 2008.

For the 2012-13 reporting year, the calculator has been developed to streamline data entry for reporting in the Emissions and Energy Reporting System (EERS). As noted in the user guide for this calculator, it can be manually populated from a draft NGER report, once all emissions and energy data has been entered into EERS and a draft NGER report has been generated. There is no functionality available within EERS to export data into the NGER Uncertainty Calculator.

For earlier reporting years, the Online System for Comprehensive Activity Reporting (OSCAR) can provide a pre-filled version of the uncertainty calculator.

Reporting year 2012-13 (for use with EERS)

Reporting uncertainty for the 2012-13 reporting year

Corporations reporting under section 19 of the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (NGER Act) are required to provide a statistical estimate of the level of uncertainty associated with scope 1 emissions under Regulation 4.17A of the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Regulations (2008) (NGER Regulations).

As this is a statutory requirement, Corporations reporting under section 19 of the NGER Act are required to take all reasonable attempts to ensure compliance.

In previous years data entered into the then reporting system, Online System for Comprehensive Activity Reporting (OSCAR), would pre-populate the uncertainty calculator. However for the 2012/13 reporting year pre-population of the uncertainty calculator from data entered into the Emission and Energy Reporting System (EERS) is not available and data will need to be entered into the uncertainty calculator manually.

The Clean Energy Regulator acknowledges the reporting burden this may create for some reporters. However, as the reporting of uncertainty is a legislative requirement, the Clean Energy Regulator expects NGER reporters to report uncertainty where it is reasonably practicable to do so.
