The Emissions and Energy Reporting System (EERS) for the 2014 NGERs reporting season is now up and running after an extended upgrade period. Users are now able to enter data, generate drafts and submit reports as required under NGER Section 19 and Section 22 (liable entities) for the 2013/14 reporting period.
We have noted there are still some issues plaguing the system. Some users have found that generating drafts can take longer than usual (up to a few days). This, coupled with a feature in EERS which now prevents data entry when a draft report has been generated means users may find themselves unable to modify EERS data for an extended period of time after generating a draft report. Once the report is generated, users can go in to ‘unlock’ the report and continue data entry.
