Contract types

At Auction 14 only Optional Delivery contracts will be available. Existing Fixed Delivery contracts will remain in force.

Before deciding whether to participate in an Emissions Reduction Fund auction, you should read and understand the Guidelines for ERF Auction 14 (to be released in early 2022).

You should also familiarise yourself and understand the documentasset:Code of Common Terms version 1 – Optional Delivery contract.

You may wish to seek legal or other advice to determine whether you wish to participate in an auction. It is important to do this in advance of the auction as you will automatically enter into a carbon abatement contract with the Clean Energy Regulator on behalf of the Commonwealth of Australia if you supply a bid and it is accepted.

Once you have decided to participate in an auction there are four key steps:

  1. registering an emissions reduction fund project
  2. auction qualification
  3. auction registration
  4. bidding.
