How NGER data is used

NGER data helps:

  • inform the public about emissions and energy flows by corporations in Australia
  • inform government policy, programs and activities at both the national and state and territory level
  • the Australian Government meet its international reporting obligations and measure its progress against international commitments.

NGER data and other registers

What we publish data on

For registered corporations and Reporting Transfer Certificate (RTC) holders, we publish information about their:

  • greenhouse gas emissions
  • net energy consumption.

For designated generation facilities, we publish information on their:

  • greenhouse gas emissions
  • energy production

  • emissions intensity
  • grid connection.

We also publish the National Greenhouse and Energy Register each year.

The publication threshold

We publish information about registered corporations if their total greenhouse gas emissions are 50 kilotonnes carbon dioxide equivalence (CO2-e) or more. This includes both scope 1 and scope 2 emissions.

We publish information about RTC holders if a facility:

  • emits 25 kilotonnes or more of CO2-e greenhouse gas
  • produces 100 or more terajoules of energy, or
  • consumes 100 or more terajoules of energy.

Registered corporations can request we don't publish some or all of their data. To submit an application, complete the Application for information not to be published
