Carbon intensity of operated generation assets

The greenhouse gas intensity of AGL's operated generation portfolio decreased in FY19 due to an increase in renewable energy generation and a decrease in brown coal generation. Market intensity decreased due to an increase in renewable generation.


  • These figures relate to the greenhouse gas emissions (scope 1 and scope 2) intensity of generation assets over which AGL has operational control, regardless of who owns the asset.

  • Assets where AGL controls or has rights to the electricity output only are not included.

  • Greenhouse gas emissions have generally been calculated in accordance with methodologies under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007.

  • Electricity generation is measured on a 'sent-out' basis at the power station gate.

  • Average market intensity is the weighted average Carbon Dioxide Equivalent Intensity Index of the National Electricity Market, as determined from data published by AEMO.

  • Generation and greenhouse gas emissions associated with AGL Macquarie assets are included from the date of AGL's acquisition on 2 September 2014.

  • Greenhouse gas emissions include carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons and sulphur hexafluoride (as applicable).
