The Data Reporting Tab also displays the following tables:

  • FACILITIES EXPECTED TO REPORT - this table lists all registered facilities and/or suppliers that are required to submit an Annual Report to EPA for the selected reporting year and displays the current status of each facility's Annual Report
  • FACILITIES NOT EXPECTED TO REPORT - this table lists all registered facilities and/or suppliers that are NOT required to submit an Annual Report to EPA for the selected reporting year. There are no reporting requirements for those that do not trigger the respective thresholds for the source categories at their facility or supply operations. Some facilities or suppliers may have registered with e-GGRT because they thought they might trigger the rule. If those facilities or suppliers now find that they are not subject to the program they should refer to Notification to Discontinue Reporting and Notification for Not Submitting an Annual Report. In future years, consistent with 98.2(i), facilities and suppliers may no longer be required to report under the program.

Using the Facility or Supplier Overview Page

The FACILITY OR SUPPLIER OVERVIEW page is your portal to the report preparation and submission functionality in e-GGRT.

After clicking the DATA REPORTING tab and clicking the OPEN button next to a facility, the FACILITY OR SUPPLIER OVERVIEW page is displayed.

The FACILITY OR SUPPLIER OVERVIEW page allows you to:

  • Choose between Webforms data entry or XML-based bulk upload reporting
  • View the subparts included in your current report and add or remove subparts as needed
  • See your emission totals based on data entered so far and/or access a detail emission summary
  • View validation messages related to the information entered into these subparts
  • Generate and submit an annual report for the facility
  • View reports and trend information
  • Notify EPA that you intend to discontinue reporting after the current reporting year
  • Notify EPA that you do not intend to report for the current reporting year

GHG Details

This is where the “rollup” is presented, which provides your total CO2 equivalent emissions (excluding biogenic) and biogenic CO2 emissions. The third total presented in the “roll up” is the quantity of CO2 equivalent for suppliers. Once all subpart data is entered, you will be able to see a comprehensive overview of your emissions with this calculator.

Click the VIEW GHG DETAILS to see the underlying details on the metric tons of GHG, by gas and by subpart, along with the Global Warming Potentials (GWPs) that go into the calculations.

Viewing the GHG details allows you to see the individual subpart components that were tallied into the roll up totals. For more information about the GHG Details page and the logic underlying GHG rollups visit our GHG Rollup Requirements Page.
