Before you apply

We have provided a range of information to help you participate in the Emissions Reduction Fund.

Make sure you read the information about how the scheme works and what kind of project can participate before you apply to participate.

Deciding whether to participate in the Emissions Reduction Fund is an important business decision. If you are considering applying for the Emissions Reduction Fund project you should first consider:

You will also need to understand the crediting and reporting periods that apply to your project.

  • A crediting period is the period of time a project is able to apply to claim ACCUs. Crediting periods vary depending on the type of project and range between 7-25 years.
  • A reporting period is a period of time for which a project report is prepared for submission to the Clean Energy Regulator. Reporting periods are nominated by the person responsible for a project, and may be as frequently as every six months. The maximum reporting period for emissions avoidance periods is two years. For sequestration projects the maximum reporting period is five years.
