It is my pleasure to present the first annual report of the Clean Energy Regulator.

The Clean Energy Regulator began operations on 2 April 2012. Established under the Clean Energy Regulator Act 2011 as an independent statutory authority, it is responsible for administering legislation that will reduce carbon emissions and increase the use of renewable energy.

The Clean Energy Regulator undertakes a broad range of functions to facilitate participation in and ensure the integrity of:

  • Australia’s new carbon pricing mechanism, which came into effect on 1 July 2012
  • previously established mechanisms for monitoring and strengthening Australia’s response to climate change, namely the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Scheme, the Australian National Registry of Emissions Units, the Carbon Farming Initiative, and the Renewable Energy Target.

Our roles include educating clients, determining entitlements and liabilities, accrediting auditors, managing access to registries, and publishing information. We work in partnership with other agencies, particularly when exercising compliance and enforcement functions.
