Quarterly reports

In accordance with section 199 (a) – (c) of the Clean Energy Act 2011, the Clean Energy Regulator must publish the following information as soon as practicable at the end of each quarter:

  • the total number of free carbon units with a particular vintage year issued during the quarter in accordance with the Jobs and Competitiveness Program;
    • for each activity that, under the Jobs and Competitiveness Program, is taken to be an emissions-intensive trade-exposed (EITE) activity—the total number of free carbon units with a particular vintage year issued during the quarter in respect of that activity in accordance with that program; and
  • if, at the end of the quarter, there were one or more pending applications for free carbon units under the Jobs and Competitiveness Program—the total number of free carbon units to which those pending applications relate.
