Strengthening requests for further information for large-scale generation certificate claims

16 July 2019

The Clean Energy Regulator is implementing changes to strengthen the Large-scale Generation Certificate (LGC) claims process. These changes will streamline processes in response to LGC claims where:

  • insufficient information has been provided to enable us to be satisfied that the LGCs are eligible for registration, or
  • our initial assessment findings suggest that LGCs have been over created.

From 30 July 2019, we will start sending out a notice of intent to determine certificates ineligible for registration to nominated persons, that impose a strict 14 day time period to provide further information for such LGC claims. We will fail LGCs in the REC Registry if the required information or submission is not provided within this period.

Nominated persons should have appropriate processes and systems in place to ensure LGC claims are calculated in accordance with the power station’s LGC methodology and are accompanied by supporting documentation. This may include:

  • interval meter data
  • completed standard validation questions, for first claims for a power station, and
  • any other information specific to your power station or fuel source (e.g. wood waste assessment sheets).

Users responsible for submitting generation data and claiming LGCs in the REC Registry should have all relevant account permissions, including:

  • enter generation data
  • create LGCs, and
  • event-driven "renewable energy power stations" emails.

See Large-scale generation certificate validation and Failure of large-scale generation certificates for more information.
