To effectively carry out our role in relation to the challenge of reducing carbon emissions, the Clean Energy Regulator needs to operate as a capable, trusted agency relied upon to make sound decisions based on excellent knowledge and reliable data.
We need to be agile and responsive to changes to our environment and work with industry, expert groups and associations to drive compliance in the sector.
We are strongly invested in creating and maintaining data sharing partnerships with our clients, stakeholders and government agencies. We are increasingly relied upon to share our regulatory experience and market knowledge to provide advice, information and support. Many of these shared insights are attributable to the large volume of high-value information and data on energy, emissions and abatement that we collect, analyse and publish. In return, we rely upon increasing volumes of information obtained by our partners to continue to inform the effective administration of our schemes and the operation of markets.
We consider the information and data we hold to be particularly valuable in informing policy and program development, reporting on Australia’s international commitments and measuring progress towards emissions targets. The data we receive from our industry and government partners assist in informing our regulatory approach and the markets, monitoring compliance and managing our schemes. Through collaborations with regulatory partners and government agencies, we have implemented a number of data exchange activities, such as:
We are continually looking at new ways to more effectively collect, use and share data already available to government to reduce the burden on clients and support the integrity of our schemes. More broadly we are actively supporting the government’s public data policies by publishing agency data on open, free platforms where our legislation permits and by adding value to data products.
In line with the whole-of-government move to increase and improve information and data-sharing outcomes, the agency has a renewed focus on how to improve management and analysis of its information and data resources. This has included the development and implementation of a three-year Data and Reporting Strategy, improvement of our disclosure processes, development of an Open Data Strategy, continuing improvement of systems, and implementation of data-sharing projects with agencies such as the Australian Energy Market Operator.
