This page is designed to provide power stations with forms and resources to assist them participate in the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target.
The Clean Energy Regulator may update or remove this information as required and you are encouraged to check using the latest version of each document.
Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000 (the Act) and regulation 7 of the
Renewable Energy (Electricity) Amendment (Transitional Provision) Regulations 2010 (the Regulations) provide that: A party to a contract mentioned in sub item 7 (1) of Schedule 2 to the Act for the supply or transfer of renewable energy certificates (however described) may apply to the Regulator for an annual transfer number for each year in which certificates will be transferred under the contract.
documentasset: CER-RET-002 Application for registration as a person representing an organisation
A person must be registered under section 10 of the Act in order to create small-scale technology certificates for solar water heaters or small generation units that they own or to obtain accreditation as a power station to create large-scale generation certificates. This form should be used by a legal person who is a body corporate (including a company) or Government entity to apply for registration under the Act.
documentasset: CER-RET-012 Accredited power stations standing notice
This document must be completed each time large-scale generation certificates are created in the REC Registry.
This form should be used if you are seeking to change the nominated person for an accredited power station.
Section 30B of the Act provides that an application to change the nominated person for an accredited power station can only be made by a registered person who is a stakeholder of that power station (that is, an owner or operator).
Documentasset:CER-RET-035 - Application to change the nominated person for an accredited power station form – Section 30B

documentasset: Waste coal mine gas eligibilty sheet
Complete the waste coal mine gas (WCMG) eligibility sheet in supplement to the 'Application for Accreditation of a Power Station', if waste coal mine gas is used as a fuel source in the power station.
Generators of renewable electricity must be registered under the Act and have their power stations accredited by the Regulator before they can create large-sale generation certificates. The accreditation process will establish if the power station is eligible to create large-scale generation certificates under the measure and, if applicable, establish a renewable energy baseline for each eligible power station. A power station must be accredited under the measure and generate renewable energy above its baseline before being eligible to create large-scale generation certificates.
This document provides information for applicants completing the 'accreditation of a power station' form.
As the popularity of commercial-size solar panel systems increases, more system owners may be attracted to the benefits of generating renewable electricity.
Depending on the size of the system, owners of commercial-sized installations may be eligible to participate in either the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme or the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target. All businesses who are considering installing solar systems are encouraged to research which scheme under the Renewable Energy Target is right for them.
This webinar discusses options under both schemes with a particular focus on requirements for the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target.
