​Regulations

The National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Regulations 2008 (the Regulations) have been updated for 2016–17 onwards. Amendments include:
  • The requirement to list the addresses of each small facility has been replaced by a requirement to report only the number of small facilities aggregated by the reporter.
  • References to ‘greenhouse gas substances’ have been replaced with references to ‘greenhouse gases’.
  • Reporting of emissions from the combustion of international bunker fuels (fuels used in shipping) for transport have been excluded.
  • Reporting of small electricity generating units has been clarified to reduce reporting burden, particularly for reporters with back-up electricity generation.
  • Reporting of electricity for use other than for supply to the main grid has been amended to clarify that electricity produced for supply to grids other than the main electricity grid is considered ‘supply to an electricity transmission or distribution network’.
Further information on particular amendments is available in the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Amendment (2016 Measures No. 1) Regulation 2016 (Amendment Regulation).
