The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced that its Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reporting Program has recently completed extensive work to develop GHG data reporting requirements for a range of different industries.
The move is set to effect gas utilities: as suppliers of natural gas they are required to report gas deliveries, as they produce carbon dioxide when burned. The previous reporting deadline of March 31 has been extended to later in the year following conversations with industry and others, and with a view to providing a higher quality data to the public.
This extension will allow EPA to further test the system that facilities will use to submit data, as well as giving industry the opportunity to test the tool, provide feedback and have sufficient time to become familiar with the system prior to reporting.
