Appendix B: Relevant legislation

The Renewable Energy Target is underpinned by the:

  • Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000, which sets out the aims of the scheme including the annual targets, creates liabilities, provides for registration of persons and accreditation of large-scale renewable power stations, and establishes the market for renewable energy certificates
  • Renewable Energy (Electricity) (Large-scale Generation Shortfall Charge) Act 2000, which provides the rate of charge for the applicable renewable energy shortfall charge for the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target
  • Renewable Energy (Electricity) (Small-scale Technology Shortfall Charge) Act 2010, which provides the rate of charge for the applicable renewable energy shortfall charge for the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme, and
  • Renewable Energy (Electricity) Regulations 2001, which provide details on issues including eligibility criteria for renewable energy sources, set the rate of liability and therefore demand for certificates, and provide criteria for accreditation of large-scale renewable energy power stations and eligibility requirements for small-scale systems
