Operational greenhouse gas footprint (material sites and fuels)

This graph shows the Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions associated with the combustion of black coal and diesel at the Bayswater and Liddell power stations, black and brown coal and natural gas at AGL Loy Yang, and gas and fuel oil at AGL Torrens. These represent AGL's material sources of greenhouse gas emissions (i.e. over 99% of Scope 1 emissions, over 90% of Scope 2 emissions, and over 99% of Scope 1 and 2 emissions combined). During FY20, emissions from the Liddell Power Station increased compared to FY19 due to decreased outages. Emissions from AGL Loy Yang decreased due to a prolonged outage of Unit 2 of Loy Yang A Power Station. Emissions decreased from AGL Torrens as the new Barker Inlet Power Station came on line in the second half of FY20.


  • Data includes Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions.

  • Greenhouse gas emissions have been calculated in accordance with National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act methodologies.

  • Figures have been rounded to the nearest ktCO2e.
