The below calculators are for the 2020-21 reporting cycle, to help reporters self-assess threshold and greenhouse gas emissions under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (NGER Act).
The calculators are designed in accordance with the NGER Act, the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Regulations 2008 (Regulations) and the methodologies of relevant parts the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Measurement) Determination 2008 (Measurement Determination).
Calculators for previous reporting periods are available on the archived resources page.
The Emissions and Energy Threshold Calculator is designed to help assess if a controlling corporation is likely to have obligations to register and report under the NGER Act. The Emissions and Energy Threshold Calculator can be used to obtain an estimate of scope 1 and scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions, energy production, and energy consumption based on data entered by the user.

The Uncertainty Calculator is designed to assist reporters in assessing and reporting uncertainty associated with scope 1 emissions where methods other than method 1 are used to report fuels or energy sources. For the 2020-21 reporting period, the Emissions and Energy Reporting System (EERS) will automatically calculate uncertainty associated with scope 1 emissions where method 1 has been used to report fuels and energy sources. The Uncertainty Calculator may assist reporters using higher order methods and/or are required to calculate uncertainty using non-default values when reporting fuels and energy sources.
