Operational greenhouse gas footprint and net energy production

The decrease in Scope 1 emissions is related to the decrease in generation from AGL Loy Yang due to an increase in forced outages in 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.

  • Includes scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions and net energy production for assets over which AGL had operational control during the period. This does not include assets where AGL controls or has rights to the electricity output only.

  • Greenhouse gas emissions and net energy production have generally been calculated in accordance with the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act methodologies.

  • Net energy production incudes the sent-out generation from AGL's operated power stations, cogeneration steam production and gas sales from operated assets, coal sales from the AGL Loy Yang Mine and the production of LPG, condensate and gas at the Wallumbilla LPG plant. This does not include any energy production for use within AGL-operated facilities.

  • 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 are rounded to the nearest ktCO2e. Energy production is rounded to the nearest 10 TJ.
