Contents

The Emissions and Energy Reporting System (EERS) is available for 2018–19 reporting. You are able to log in to EERS, enter data and submit your reports. If you experience any log in difficulties, please contact us on 1300 553 542.

What’s new 2018–19

Changes made to the Emissions and Energy Reporting System (EERS) for the 2018–19 reporting year include:

  • Updates to reflect legislative amendments that apply for the 2018-19 reporting year onwards—see NGER legislation changes for 2018-19 reporting
  • Removal of the ability to report scope 2 emissions from the consumption of energy commodities (e.g. steam) as there is currently no method available
  • Measurement criteria for certain sources will be locked from editing. Subsections 2.14(3), 2.29(3), 2.50(3) and 4.35(3) of the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Measurement) Determination 2008 require that measurement criteria are not changed for specific circumstances (detailed below) after being reported in a reporting year.

    The measurement criteria and sub-criterion fields will be locked for the combinations in Table 1, where the following apply:

    • Criterion ‘AA’ (sub-criterion is not available for this criterion), or
    • Criterion ‘AAA’ AND sub-criterion ‘AAA-commercial transaction-point of combustion’.
    • For all other criterion or sub-criterion combinations, this feature is not required.

      For further information on measurement criteria, please see NGER guides and factsheets.
