Electricity output by primary energy source
AGL's FY19 total electricity output increased from FY18. Reduced generation from AGL Loy Yang (brown coal) in FY19 was more than offset by increased generation from the Liddell and Bayswater power stations (black coal). Wind generation increased during FY19 relative to FY18 levels due to the gradual completion of the Silverton Wind Farm. Below average rainfall in FY19 led to increased irrigation flows and consequently increased hydro generation relative to FY18. Generation from landfill gas, biomass and biogas decreased in FY19 as the portfolio of landfill gas, biomass and biogas generation assets formerly known as the National Assets was sold during FY19.
Data relates to the sent-out electricity generation from 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.
In addition to the electricity output shown, in FY19, AGL produced 167 TJ of heat energy (as steam) from AGL's operated natural gas cogeneration facilities (FY18: 191 TJ). This comprised 77 TJ of steam produced at the Coopers Cogeneration Facility, and 90 TJ of steam produced at AGL Torrens and sold to Air Liquide.
The output from the AGL Macquarie assets are included from the date of AGL's acquisition on 2 September 2014.
Output is rounded to the nearest GWh.
