Failed large-scale generation certificates

Suggested Reading Suggested Reading

31 October 2016

The Clean Energy Regulator conducts audits on the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target, and during the audit process, large-scale generation certificates may be failed.

There are many reasons why large-scale generation certificates may be failed by the Clean Energy Regulator, including:

  • the power station creates more certificates than they are eligible for
  • certificates are created and registered under the wrong fuel source
  • certificates are created at the wrong time, and
  • adjustments were made to the electricity data. In this case the meter data that was sent to the Clean Energy Regulator to support certificate creation was adjusted which resulted in the under/over-creation of certificates.

What you can do about failed certificates

The Clean Energy Regulator will notify a power station if it has failed certificates, and they will also appear on the electricity generation return.

If you have been notified of failed certificates you may try creating them again as long as the power station is eligible to create certificates.

The deliberate improper creation of one or more certificates is considered a criminal offence under the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000. Any instance of large-scale generation certificates found to be improperly created may result in referral for prosecution, regardless of the reason of improper creation.
