Summary of EGR and SWH/SGUR compliance and assessment

 

By 31 December 2012, a total of 310 EGRs were received for the 2011 generation year, with the expected number of EGRs being 337. Assessments of the EGRs continued throughout the 2012 calendar year. All EGRs were completed and the power stations’ primary contacts were informed of the outcome of the assessment. The remaining 27 EGRs are not expected to be lodged due to various reasons including:

  • the power stations are no longer in operation (decommissioned)                    
  • the companies have requested that that their power stations be removed from the accreditation list, or
  • the power stations are not able to be contacted.

By 31 December 2012, a total of 293 SWH/SGURs were received for the 2011 compliance period. All completed SWH/SGURs received were assessed, with confirmation of the assessment provided by the Clean Energy Regulator to the relevant company contact.

1 The Renewable Energy Target scheme commenced on 1 April 2001. The first compliance period being 2001 was nine months. All other compliance years are full calendar years.

2 The number of LGCs remaining can change if EGRs are amended or additional information is received by the Clean Energy Regulator for example, at the conclusion of an audit. However, under Section 19 of the Act nominated persons are no longer eligible to create LGCs in respect of the 2001–2011 generation years after 31 December 2012.

3In the 2010 generation year, less than 300 certificates remained uncreated by 16 registered persons, including three registered persons who failed to create certificates for eligible generation.

4 In the 2011 generation year, less than 620 certificates remained uncreated by 27 registered persons, including four registered persons who failed to create certificates for eligible generation.

5In the 2011 generation year, 12,779 certificates were improperly created and became registered for two registered persons. An enforceable undertaking was acknowledged by one registered person for the improper creation of certificates and the number of certificates improperly created were voluntary surrendered during 2012.

6There are no remaining certificates for SWHs as the time allowed to create these has expired. From 6 October 2007 there are no certificates remaining for SGUs as the time allowed to create these has expired. From 1 April 2001 to 5 October 2007 there still could be certificates remaining for SGUs if eligibility requirements are met. There is no data available to report the number of certificates remaining for this category.
