Total energy consumption, performance year:
212,722 MMBtu

Clean and renewable electricity (report kilowatt-hours):
kWh MMBtu
Imported electricity from certified/verified clean and renewable sources (i.e., bundled green power purchases) 7,783,731 Kilowatt-hours 26,558.09 MMBtu
Electricity from on-site, clean and renewable sources (rights retained/retired) 14,114 Kilowatt-hours 48.16 MMBtu

A brief description of the certified/verified sources of clean and renewable electricity:

Large-scale generation certificates (LGCs) surrendered by electricity retailers to meet their Large-scale Renewable Energy Target (LRET) obligations for 2018. LCGs are created by accredited renewable energy power stations. One large-scale generation certificate is equal to one megawatt hour of eligible renewable electricity


A brief description of the on-site renewable electricity generating facilities/devices:

On-site renewable energy production (solar photovoltaic) from eight rooftop installations in Tasmanian campuses. Total size is 103.28 kW

Energy consumption data and on-site electricity generation is from UTAS Greenhouse Gas Inventory 2018, used for carbon neutral certification under the Australian National Carbon Offset Standard (https://www.environment.gov.au/climate-change/government/carbon-neutral/ncos).
Renewable Power Percentage to calculate Large-scale generation certificates (LGCs) surrendered by electricity retailers to meet their Large-scale Renewable Energy Target (LRET) obligations for 2018 from the Australian Government Clean Energy Regulator (http://www.cleanenergyregulator.gov.au/RET/Scheme-participants-and-industry/the-renewable-power-percentage).
Percentage of electricity use by source estimated from the Australian Department of the Environment and Energy - Australian Statistics Report (https://www.energy.gov.au/publications/australian-energy-statistics-table-o-electricity-generation-fuel-type-2017-18-and-2018) and percentage of electricity use by the University of Tasmania per state/territory in which the University operates. Note that percentage of electricity use by source is calculated from energy generation per state/territory and doesn't include export/import between states as this data was difficult to obtain
