Emissions continue to rise, demand decline slows

Carbon emissions in Australia's electricity sector continued their post-carbon tax repeal climb, despite weaker demand, with hydro falling and wind generation stagnant.

The CEDEX Electricity Update shows that the month by month increase in annualised emissions from NEM electricity generation, which started in July, continued unabated in November (Figure 5). Annual emissions in the year to November 2014 were 3.2 Mt CO2‐e higher than in the year to June 2014, an increase of 2.2% in five months.
