Exemptions reported by liable entities

29 September 2017

​Under the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000 (the Act)and Renewable Energy (Electricity) Regulations 2001 (the Regulations), companies conducting emissions-intensive trade-exposed activities can apply to the Clean Energy Regulator for exemption certificates (previously referred to as partial exemption certificates).

An emissions-intensive trade-exposed company that meets the eligibility criteria is issued with an exemption certificate. The emissions-intensive trade-exposed company can negotiate the sale of the exemption certificate with the liable entity that is nominated on the certificate. The liable entity may use the exemption certificate to reduce their relevant acquisitions of electricity and reduce their small-scale technology certificate and large-scale generation certificate liabilities for the assessment year. There were no small-scale technology certificate liabilities for 2010 and prior years.

In accordance with section 38C of the Act and regulation 22E (1) of the Regulations, the following information must be published on the Clean Energy Regulator website before 1 October in the following year:

  • the name of each liable entity​
  • the value in dollars estimated by the Regulator of the amount of partial exemption for the year, and
  • each emissions-intensive trade-exposed activity set out in the partial exemption certificates.
