Amending the Regulations

 

The Regulations were established on 6 February 2001, and have subsequently been amended several times.

During 2012, one amendment was conducted by the former Office of the Renewable Energy Regulator prior to being amalgamated into the Clean Energy Regulator. Eight amendments were conducted by the former Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency.

The Act is also supported by Regulations referred to as transitional provisions:

  • Renewable Energy (Electricity) Amendment (Transitional Provisions) Regulations 2010 that were made by the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency to support the 2010 Amendment Act. These Regulations were amended once in 2010, and                    
  • Renewable Energy (Electricity) Amendment (Transitional Provisions) Regulations 2009 that were made by the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency to support the 2009 Amendment Act.

New amendments are expected each year to set future renewable power percentages and small-scale technology percentages.
