Frequently Asked Questions

What has changed?

Additional data and methodology updates have been applied to previous year’s Snapshot profiles. This means your Snapshot profile will have changed. Notable changes include:

  • Addition of Industrial Processes and Product Use (IPPU) as a new emissions source. This brings Snapshot profiles in line with the GPC BASIC+ standard.
  • Inclusion of Tier 2 electricity and gas data for NSW and QLD and an improved methodology for all states for residential stationary energy.
  • Incorporation of location based key emitters via NGERS and the Safeguard mechanism for industrial stationary energy.
  • Updated emissions coefficients for 2019/20.
  • Inclusion of Tier 2 municipal level agricultural data for all municipalities.
  • Addition of On Road Freight as a transport emissions source for municipalities with Google EIE data.
  • Addition of aviation data for 30 new municipalities and improved aviation data for all municipalities.
  • Improved data sets for waste and wastewater for all municipalities.

These changes will mostly be reflected in stationary energy. An example of the changes for Darebin City Council for the municipality’s 2019 profile are described below.

  • Reduced total municipal emissions (1,561,000 instead of 1,652,000)
  • Addition of IPPU which contributes around 5% to Darebin’s profile
  • Reduced contribution from industrial electricity (15% instead of 20%)
  • Reduced contribution from commercial and industrial gas (17% instead of 21%)
  • Slight changes to waste, and transport proportions
