There are currently two calculation methods that can be used when applying for Emissions-Intensive Trade-Exposed (EITE) exemption certificates:
Each method has separate application forms and guidelines. Applicants that use more than 2000 gigawatt hours of electricity in 2018 need to use the electricity use method in 2019 to determine their exemption. Applicants must use the appropriate application form for the method of determining EITE exemption they choose.
Applications for exemption certificates are open until 1 April 2019. This is a legislated deadline and no extensions to this timeframe will be granted.
The electricity use method application form for 2019 is only available through the
