Omit “solid or gaseous fuel”, substitute “solid fuel, gaseous fuel, sulphur, uranium or hydrogen”.

2  Subsection 6.3(1)

After “(fuel)”, insert “, other than sulphur, uranium or hydrogen,”.

3  At the end of section 6.3

Add:

Sulphur, uranium or hydrogen

             (3)  The energy content of sulphur, uranium or hydrogen produced from the operation of the facility during the year is worked out using the following formula:

where:

EC is the energy content factor of sulphur, uranium or hydrogen (whichever is applicable) mentioned in Part 7 of Schedule 1, measured in gigajoules per tonne.

Q is the quantity of sulphur, uranium or hydrogen (whichever is applicable) produced during the year and measured in tonnes.

Z is the energy content of sulphur, uranium or hydrogen (whichever is applicable) produced during the year and measured in gigajoules.

4  Subsection 6.5(1)

After “(fuel)”, insert “, other than sulphur, uranium or hydrogen,”.

5  Subsection 6.5(1) (subparagraphs (a)(i), (b)(i) and (d)(i) and (ii) of the definition of ECi)

Omit “or Part 7”.

6  At the end of section 6.5

Add:

Sulphur, uranium or hydrogen

             (4)  The energy content of sulphur, uranium or hydrogen consumed from the operation of the facility during the year is worked out using the following formula:

where:

EC is the energy content factor of sulphur, uranium or hydrogen (whichever is applicable) mentioned in Part 7 of Schedule 1, measured in gigajoules per tonne.

Q is the quantity of sulphur, uranium or hydrogen (whichever is applicable) consumed during the year and measured in tonnes.

Z is the energy content of sulphur, uranium or hydrogen (whichever is applicable) consumed during the year and measured in gigajoules.

7  At the end of subsection 7.1(1)

Add “, or the loss of electricity from an electricity transmission network or distribution network”.

8  Subsection 7.1(3)

Repeal the subsection (not including the note).

9  Section 7.2 (heading)

Repeal the heading, substitute:

7.2  Method 1—purchase and loss of electricity from main electricity grid in a State or Territory

Omit “, subject to subsection (2),”.

11  Subsection 7.2(2)

Repeal the subsection, substitute:

          (1A)  The method in subsection (1) must, subject to subsection (2), also be used for estimating scope 2 emissions released from electricity consumed from the operation of a facility during a year if the operation of the facility is constituted by an electricity transmission network or distribution network that is, or is part of, the main electricity grid in a State or Territory.

             (2)  In applying that method for the purposes of subsection (1A), Q is the quantity of electricity losses for that network during the year.

12  Section 7.3 (heading)

Repeal the heading, substitute:

7.3  Method 1—purchase and loss of electricity from other sources

13  Subsection 7.3(1) (definition of Q)

Omit “, subject to subsection (2),”.

14  Subsection 7.3(2)

Repeal the subsection, substitute:

          (1A)  The formula in subsection (1) must, subject to subsection (2), also be used for estimating scope 2 emissions released from electricity consumed from the operation of facility during a year if the operation of the facility is constituted by an electricity transmission network or distribution network that is not, and is not part of, the main electricity grid in a State or Territory.

             (2)  In applying that formula for the purposes of subsection (1A), Q is the quantity of electricity losses for that network during the year.

15  In the appropriate position in Chapter 9

Insert:

9.10  Amendments made by the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Measurement) Amendment (Energy) Determination 2017

                   The amendments made by the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Measurement) Amendment (Energy) Determination 2017 apply in relation to:

                     (a)  the financial year starting on 1 July 2017; and

                     (b)  later financial years.
