Report Types

1) Summary-Level Emissions

This report shows the total amount of CO2 emissions that are subject to a CO2 allowance compliance obligation under state CO2 Budget Trading Program regulations. The total has been adjusted to account for CO2 emissions that are reported to RGGI COATS but not subject to a CO2 allowance compliance obligation (such as eligible biomass and certain industrial generators).

2) Emissions

These reports include CO2 emissions data for power plants regulated under state CO2 Budget Trading Programs in the RGGI participating states. These reports do not include any adjustments for state CO2 emissions exemptions (such as eligible biomass and certain industrial generators). Each report includes facility name, facility ID (ORIS code), unit IDs, state facility ID, operating time, operating hours, CO2 emitted, heat input, and CO2 emitted due to the use of eligible biomass fuel. The reports are available by:

3) Sources Report

This report includes a list of all CO2 budget sources in each state. It includes the source name, facility ID (ORIS code), unit IDs, state, state facility ID, and owner/operator.

4) Owner/Operator Report

This report includes information about RGGI COATS accounts related to owners/operators. For compliance accounts, it details the account name, facility name, facility ID (ORIS code), unit IDs, owner/operator, state, and state facility ID. For general accounts, it details the account name and the parties with an ownership interest in the CO2 allowances in the account.

5) Account Report

This report includes information about all accounts in RGGI COATS: account number, account name, account type (compliance/general), facility owner/operator (compliance accounts) or parties with an ownership interest in the CO2 allowances in the account (general account), authorized account representative, state, and status.

6) Account Representatives Report

This report provides the name, address, telephone number, and fax number of authorized account representatives and alternate authorized account representatives in RGGI COATS. For compliance accounts, the report also includes the account name, facility name, facility ID (ORIS code), and owner/operator. For general accounts, the report also includes the account name and the parties with an ownership interest in the CO2 allowances in the account.

7) Transaction Price Report

RGGI COATS records ownership of CO2 allowances and enables compliance and general account holders to transfer and receive COallowances. Each CO2 budget source has a compliance account. All other market participants must open a RGGI COATS general account in order to transfer and receive CO2 allowances.

This report allows the public to query CO2 allowance transaction information by transaction type, financial transaction date, RGGI COATS allowance transfer recordation date, and the transferred allowances by control period. The report provides the transaction type, transfer and recorded dates, price and number of allowances for each transaction, and the transferred allowances by control period. This report does not include identifying information of transferor or transferee accounts or the identification by serial number of specific CO2 allowances transferred.  The report also provides the weighted average price of all transactions during the range of dates specified by the query.

8) Special Approvals

This report includes information about allowances distributed through state CO2 Budget Trading Program CO2 allowance set-aside and other allocation provisions. These provisions address early reduction allowances, long-term power purchase contracts, direct allowance purchases, and allowance retirements, among others. For information about individual participating state allocation provisions and application procedures, please consult state regulations or state program contacts. (Please note: only special approval applications that have been processed by the applicable state regulatory agency are available for public view.)

9) Offsets Projects

This report contains information about offset projects for which a complete Consistency Application has been submitted to the applicable state regulatory agency. The report includes the following information for each offset project: project ID code, project name, project type, reviewing state, consistency application status, application submission date, and CO2 allowances awarded. (Please note: only offset projects that have a Consistency Application deemed complete, consistent, or inconsistent by the applicable state regulatory agency are available for public view.)

10) Compliance

Three compliance data reports are available to the public. The Compliance Summary Report in RGGI COATS provides state-derived compliance evaluations for each three-year control period. The Interim Compliance Summary Report provides data regarding CO2 allowances provided by CO2 budget sources to meet their interim compliance obligation for an interim control period (the first two calendar years of each three-year control period). The Source-Submitted Data Report shows data that was submitted by CO2 budget sources prior to final compliance true-up and is only available prior to final compliance true-up. This report does not include any state-derived evaluations of compliance.
