Commercial and industrial solar PV systems have been growing strongly in both the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme and the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target for some time. However, systems have in the past often been sized below optimal in order to be incentivised under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (with deeming) rather than the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target (accredited power station and certificates after generation). There is currently a strong Large Generation Certificate price signal for large scale renewable build which may change the business case for system size and scheme choice. This presentation will discuss this opportunity and explain what the Clean Energy Regulator is doing to make it easy for large commercial and industrial solar PV systems to enter the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target.

In early 2016 the Clean Energy Regulator released the 2015 Renewable Energy Target Administrative Report and Annual Statement. The report covers the operations of the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000 for the 2015 calendar year and for the first time includes information about progress towards meeting the revised 2020 Large-scale Renewable Energy Target. The conclusion reached from this report is that progress was adequate under the circumstances and that the target was achievable. For progress towards the 2020 target to be satisfactory in 2016, it was concluded that around 3000 megawatts of new build will need to be committed. This build will need to be further intensified in future years and will benefit strongly from a targeted approach to market development. In this session the Clean Energy Regulator will discuss outcomes from their newly released report on opportunities available in the renewable energy sector that may contribute toward investment in the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target.

The Emissions Reduction Fund is a voluntary scheme that provides incentives to adopt new practices and technologies to reduce their emissions. Ongoing sustained interest from the waste sector in the Emissions Reduction Fund has seen around 9 million tonnes of abatement avoided and more than seventy waste projects successfully contract with the Government for an agreed price on emissions. There are a number of opportunities for the waste industry to participate in the Emissions Reduction Fund by reducing emissions, improving energy efficiency, avoiding emissions of methane and nitrous oxide, or by converting methane into carbon dioxide. There are now several waste methods available for landfill, alternative waste treatment including organic waste and waste water.
