Under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) Scheme, corporations that meet certain thresholds must report to the Clean Energy Regulator (the agency) their
emissions, energy production and energy consumption each financial year. This data informs government policy, programs and activities, and helps meet Australia’s international reporting obligations.
By 28 February each year, the agency publishes information about
reporting transfer certificate holders,
designated generation facilities,
the National Greenhouse and Energy Register, and
GreenPower and renewable energy certificates.
The NGER scheme does not collect or publish data on emissions from the agriculture, land use, land use change, forestry, private vehicle transport and residential sectors. Emissions from these sectors are captured in the
National Greenhouse Accounts.
data highlights for more information about the data that we publish each year.
Under the NGER scheme, we will only publish data about registered corporations above certain thresholds. This is referred to as the publication threshold.
The publication threshold determines that the agency will publish information about registered corporations:
controlling corporations data is published if corporate totals have combined
scope 1 and scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions equal to or greater than 50 kilotonnes carbon dioxide equivalence (CO2-e).
reporting transfer certificate holders data is published if a facility has:
The agency is also required to publish information about facilities identified as electricity generators.
Under section 25 of the
National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007, registered corporations may also apply to have all or part of their reported greenhouse gas emissions and energy production and consumption totals withheld from publication.
