Legislation

The Renewable Energy Target schemes are underpinned by legislation:

  • The Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000 sets out the aims of the schemes including the annual targets, creates liabilities, provides for registration of persons and accreditation of power stations, and establishes the market for renewable energy certificates.
  • The Renewable Energy (Electricity) (Large-scale Generation Shortfall Charge) Act 2000 provides the rate of charge for the applicable renewable energy shortfall charge for the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target.
  • The Renewable Energy (Electricity) (Small-scale Technology Shortfall Charge) Act 2010 provides the rate of charge for the applicable renewable energy shortfall charge for the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme.

The Renewable Energy (Electricity) Regulations 2001 provide details on a number of issues, including eligibility criteria for renewable energy sources and criteria for accreditation of power stations and small-scale systems.
