Emissions intensity still rising - fully offset by reduced generation

Victorian brown coal's share of the electricity market is continuing to grow after the axing of the carbon tax, but sharply falling power demand in the month squared the emissions ledger.

For the first time since last June, this month’s Cedex Update is not reporting an increase in annualised emissions from electricity generation in the NEM. Emissions in the year to January 2015 were almost precisely the same as in the year to December 2014. The main reason for the halt in absolute emissions growth is that annualised generation fell more sharply than it has over most of the past seven months (Figure 1).
