Performance summary

The Clean Energy Regulator measures its performance against key performance indicators, as summarised in the following table. This is the first year of reporting against these key performance indicators (see Planning and reporting on page 74). As a result, no trend information is available this year. However, year-on-year comparisons are provided for individual schemes in Section 3: Performance overview from page 28.

Deliverables achieved

  • Administration of market based schemes that contribute to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, including the Emissions Reduction Fund from 1 July 2014.
  • Administration of the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Scheme to:
    • inform government policy formulation and the Australian public
    • underpin Australia's international reporting obligations
    • assist Commonwealth, state and territory government programmes and activities, and
    • reduce the need for duplication of similar reporting requirements by the states and territories.
  • Operation of the Renewable Energy Target by:
    • ensuring the integrity of renewable energy certificate market supply (certificates created)
    • ensuring the integrity of renewable energy certificate market demand (certificates surrendered), and
    • maintaining the registry that facilitates administration of renewable energy certificates by market participants.
  • Maintenance of the electronic register for emissions units that:
    • enables Australia to meet its commitment under the Kyoto Protocol
    • allows for the issuance and management of Australian carbon credit units through approved projects that reduce net greenhouse gas emissions, and
    • allows for the management of carbon tax liabilities and issues of units for industry assistance.

Results:
The Clean Energy Regulator achieved its deliverables this year, as reported in detail in Section 3: Performance overview from page 28.

KPI achieved

Increased issuance of Australian carbon credit units (ACCUs) for projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Result:

  • 9.32 million ACCUs issued under the Carbon Farming Initiative/ Emissions Reduction Fund in 2014–15 compared with 4.38 million ACCUs issued under the Carbon Farming Initiative in 2013–14.

KPI partially achieved

Additional generation of electricity from renewable sources consistent with annual legislated demand under the Renewable Energy Target.

Note: only large-scale generation certificates are subject to a legislated target, which was 16.95 million gigawatt hours in 2014 and 18.85 million gigawatt hours in 2015.

The Large-scale Renewable Energy Target experienced a slow-down in investment in 2015 due to ongoing policy uncertainty. As a result, limited new capacity was accredited by the Clean Energy Regulator in 2015.

Results:

  • 13.75 million large-scale generation certificates, representing 13.75 million megawatt hours of additional electricity generated by renewable energy power stations.
  • 18.11 million small-sale technology certificates, raising the capacity of small-scale installations to generate or displace to around 8.2 million megawatt hours of electricity each year.
  • Combined total of 31.87 million renewable energy certificates created.
  • 21.95 million megawatt hours of additional electricity generated from renewable sources.
