Method development tracker

03 December 2021

The Clean Energy Regulator is responsible for the development of new methods under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF). The current method development priorities are:

Visit the Method development page for information on how methods are prioritised.

The Clean Energy Regulator develops priority methods through a co-design process with industry, potential end-users, scientists and technical experts and the Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee (ERAC). We have a KPI to develop new methods within 12 months of work starting unless intractable scientific or technical issues emerge.

We are committed to transparency and accountability. The method development tracker charts progress for each of the priority methods, providing stakeholders with visibility of the method development process.

Key achievements

In working through the method development process for the five priority methods our most recent achievements are:

  • 2 co-design workshops have now been held for all priority methods to seek feedback on early drafts of simple method guides and draft methods. We have incorporated feedback received to date into revised drafts.
  • The CCS method was made by the Minister on 24 September 2021 and is available for ERF project registration.
  • The 2021 soil carbon method was made by the Minister on 1 December 2021 and is available for ERF project registration.
  • The draft 2021 blue carbon method was released for public consultation on 13 October and closed on 10 November 2021.
  • The draft 2021 plantation forestry method was released for public consultation on 26 October 2021 and closed on 23 November 2021.
  • To progress the biomethane method package, the draft 2021 variations to the landfill gas (electricity generation) method, wastewater treatment method; and animal effluent management method were released for public consultation on 2 November 2021. Consultation closed on 30 November 2021.
