Using the electricity use method to calculate exemption certificates in 2019

03 August 2018

The Clean Energy Regulator is making it easier for companies who conduct eligible emissions-intensive trade-exposed (EITE) activities to use the electricity use method to calculate exemption certificates under the Renewable Energy Target in 2019.

A new online form and assessment process is available through the client portal, with applications now open.

What does this mean?

All interactions between the Clean Energy Regulator and EITE companies will occur online though the client portal.

EITE companies will be able to:

  • complete and submit the Exemption Certificate form – Electricity use method
  • receive communication during the assessment process regarding requests for information
  • receive exemption certificates
  • monitor an estimated exemption amount during the exemption year
  • provide internal meter information (if applicable) to assist in determining the exemption amount, and
  • receive a notification of the exemption amount after the exemption year is complete.

The Clean Energy Regulator will host a webinar on Wednesday, 22 August 2018 to demonstrate the new process within the client portal. To register for the webinar please visit the events page.

Further information

Visit the ​ electricity use method page for further information and resources for applying for 2019 exemption certificates.
