Operational greenhouse gas footprint (material sites and fuels)
This graph shows the Scope 1 & 2 greenhouse gas emissions associated with the combustion of black coal and diesel at Bayswater and Liddell power stations, black and brown coal and natural gas at AGL Loy Yang, and gas and fuel oil at AGL Torrens. These represent AGL's material sources of greenhouse gas emissions (i.e. over 99% of Scope 1 emissions, over 90% of Scope 2 emissions, and over 99% of scope 1 and 2 emissions combined). During FY19, emissions from Bayswater and Liddell power stations increased compared to FY18 due to a decrease in duration of unplanned outages. Emissions from AGL Loy Yang decrease due to an increase in unplanned outages in FY19.
These figures include scope 1 and scope 2 emissions.
Greenhouse gas emissions have been calculated in accordance with National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act methodologies.
Greenhouse gas emissions associated with AGL Macquarie assets are included from the date of AGL's acquisition on 2 September 2014.
Figures have been rounded to the nearest ktCO2e.
