This CEDEX® Electricity Update contains data for emissions from electricity generation in the National ElectricityMarket (NEM) up to the end of December 2015. All emissions data are reported as annual moving averages. This approach removes the impact on the reported data of seasonal changes, which particularly influence electricity andgas. Annualised data reported in CEDEX® will show a month on month increase if the most recent monthly quantityis greater than the quantity in the corresponding month one year previously.
