About the Clean Energy Regulator

Our vision

To support Australia in transitioning to a low carbon economy through an informed and efficient market for carbon and investment in renewable energy.

Our purpose

The Clean Energy Regulator administers the carbon pricing mechanism, the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Scheme, the Carbon Farming Initiative, the Renewable Energy Target and the Australian National Registry of Emissions Units (the five schemes). Our purpose is to build a clean energy future for Australia by:

  • collecting, analysing and assessing emissions data to determine each emitting entity's liability
  • operating an emissions unit and Renewable Energy Certificate registry
  • monitoring, facilitating and enforcing compliance with the carbon pricing mechanism
  • allocating units, including freely allocated units, fixed price units and auctioned units
  • accrediting auditors for the Carbon Farming Initiative, the carbon pricing mechanism and the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Scheme, and
  • working with other law enforcement and regulatory bodies, including the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre, the Australian Federal Police and the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions.
