Under the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target, eligible renewable energy power stations may apply for accreditation to create, buy and sell large-scale generation certificates.
Following assessment of your application, the Clean Energy Regulator will either approve or refuse your application under section 15 of the
Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000 (the Act). The nominated person will be notified by mail of the application outcome.
The Clean Energy Regulator must make a decision regarding an application for accreditation within six weeks from the time an application has been correctly submitted, as stated under section 13 of the Act, unless a longer period is agreed with the applicant.
If an application for accreditation is refused by the Clean Energy Regulator, the applicant may appeal the decision in writing.
All successfully accredited power stations will be issued a unique accreditation code.
Accredited renewable energy power stations may create large-scale generation certificates from the date the Clean Energy Regulator accepted their application, or the date they started generating renewable electricity—whichever is later.
