NSW ggas scheme summary

  1. 1. NSW GGASScheme SummaryA presentation prepared by AGL<br />For further information:<br />Simon Kelleyskelley@agl.com.au<br />Tim Nelsontanelson@agl.com.au<br />
  2. 2. Retailers in NSW (and ACT) are required to reduce emissions to 7.27 tonnes per capita (95% of 1990 levels) from 2007<br />Each retailers total allowable emissions is determined by market share of sales X overall emission target (based upon population X 7.27)<br />Each retailer’s emissions are determined by multiplying the pool coefficient (emissions intensity of electricity sold in NSW) by sales<br />If emissions are higher than their benchmark, retailers can purchase emission reduction certificates (NSW Greenhouse Gas Abatement Certificates - NGACS) to meet their benchmark<br />A NSW Greenhouse Gas Abatement Certificate is equal to 1 tonne of abatement<br />Once a national emissions trading scheme is established GGAS will be transitioned in the ETS<br />Overview<br />AGL Energy<br />March 2010<br />
  3. 3. Creating NGACs<br />There are four main ways in which an NGAC can be created:<br />lower emission generation (throughout the NEM except RECs)<br />demand reductions (in NSW)<br />abatement created by large users (who elect to manage their own benchmark) – use over 100 GWh of electricity at one or more sites in NSW, as long as one of the sites uses over 50 GWh<br />carbon sequestration (i.e. trees planted in NSW)<br />AGL Energy<br />March 2010<br />
  4. 4. Creating Generation NGACs<br />Four categories of generator<br />Category A: generators that entered into PPAs with retailers before the scheme became mandatory. (This is to cease 1 July 2010)<br />Category B: existing NSW coal fired generators<br />Category C: other existing generators<br />Category D: new (generally renewable) generation<br />Two approaches can be used<br />relative intensity entitles the generator to create NGACs for generators with an intensity below the pool coefficient<br />efficiency improvement approach allows generators that improve their emissions intensity to create NGACs<br />Generators cannot create NGACs for a MWh of generation used to create a REC <br />AGL Energy<br />March 2010<br />
  5. 5. Creating Generation NGACs<br />Landfill and coal-mine methane are also entitled to create NGACs for ‘avoided methane’ releases<br />coal-mine methane must be sourced from a site which is located within a coal-mine production lease (even if the mine has closed)<br />AGL Energy<br />March 2010<br />
  6. 6. Creating Demand-side NGACs<br />Energy efficiency projects that modify existing consuming installations<br />Energy efficiency projects that replace existing installations with other installations that consume less electricity<br />Energy efficiency projects that install new installations that consume less electricity than other installations of the same type<br />Fuel switching projects that substitute one source of energy for another<br />On-site electricity generation that replaces supply from the National Electricity Market<br />AGL Energy<br />March 2010<br />
