Amount of exemption issued by activity

24 September 2020

The Clean Energy Regulator publishes an estimate of the total amount of exemption given for each emissions-intensive trade-exposed activity for a year by 30 March in the year after the year to which the exemptions relate. The amount of exemption for each activity is expressed in megawatt hours and as a percentage of the total amount of exemption granted for that year. The amount of exemption may change to reflect exemption certificate amendments, for example where an inaccurate amount of exemption was issued.

Before the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Amendment Bill 2015 was passed partial exemption certificates were issued for the years from 2010 to 2014.

The table below provides a megawatt hour summary of exemption certificates per year issued.
