Energy consumption by primary fuel source
There was a decrease in generation from AGL Loy Yang corresponding to a decrease in brown coal consumption. There was an increase in generation from AGL Macquarie and a corresponding increase in black coal consumption. The increase in petroleum product consumption is primarily due to the increased firing of fuel oil at AGL Torrens. The decrease in consumption of landfill gas and other biofuels is due to the sale of the National Assets portfolio during FY19.
FY19 data was updated in December 2019. Data was not available at the time of the initial release of the 2019 Data Centre on 8 August 2019.
Energy consumption data has been determined in accordance with the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 and its supporting legislative framework that has been produced (and is periodically updated) by the Australian Federal Government.
Energy consumption includes all instances where fuels are combusted, or otherwise consumed by AGL's activities (including flaring, venting and degradation of energy commodities). However, the reported values do not include situations where fuel commodities are used as a feedstock (e.g. in the manufacture of LPG), or where the commodities are not significantly altered by the consumption (such as the consumption of wind, water and solar energy).
Energy consumption has been rounded to the nearest TJ.
Energy consumption associated with AGL Macquarie is included from the date of acquisition (2 September 2014).
Data comprises energy consumed at our operated facilities, and does not include energy purchased through the wholesale market which is sold to our customers.
