The Clean Energy Regulator has announced that it will hold the second Emissions Reduction Fund auction for carbon abatement contracts on Wednesday 4 November and Thursday 5 November 2015. Further announcement details are available in the media update.
The auction guidelines will be published on Friday 21 August 2015.
Applications for new projects that wish to enter the auction are required to be submitted in full by 18 September 2015.
Participants are encouraged to submit their completed applications as soon as possible to allow for processing to ensure their project can participate in the auction.
The Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011 allows 90 days for the Clean Energy Regulator to decide whether to approve projects for registration. Nevertheless, the Clean Energy Regulator will use its best endeavours to process all complete applications received prior to the cut-off date.
Applications will be processed in order of receipt. Processing times vary depending on the quality and complexity of the application and the volume of applications received.
Project applications submitted after 18 September 2015, or those that require further information to be completed will not be eligible to participate in the second auction but may qualify for future auctions.
