Step six – accreditation decision

04 June 2018

Accreditation decision

Following assessment of your application, the Clean Energy Regulator will either approve or refuse your application. You will be notified of the application outcome via email and letter.

If the agency approves the application, the agency will allocate the power station a unique identification code. This decision is a reviewable decision. If your application for accreditation is refused by the agency, you may have the decision reviewed.

The agency must make a decision about your application for accreditation within six weeks from when the application was considered properly made, unless a longer period is agreed to.

Please note:

  • The baseline for your power station will be determined at the time the accreditation decision is made. All power stations that start generating electricity after 1 January 1997 will receive a zero baseline. If you believe your power station qualifies for a special baseline please consult Schedule 3 of the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Regulations 2001.
  • Your power station cannot receive large-scale generation certificates (LGCs) for any renewable energy generated by the power station until it is an accredited power station.
  • Following accreditation, your eligibility to create LGCs begins on the date the power station starts generating electricity from renewable energy sources.
  • If you have applied for accreditation after your power station started generating electricity, your eligibility to create LGCs will be the date of accreditation.

Accreditation decision

The Clean Energy Regulator will approve or refuse the application under section 15 of the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000 (REE Act) and the power station will be listed on the Register of Accredited Power Stations (in the REC Registry) if the:

  • application is found to be ‘properly made’ under section 13 of the REE Act, and
  • it is determined that the power station meets eligibility requirements under section 14 of the REE Act.
