Table 8: Comparing eligibility and registered certificates by generation years to view certificates remaining uncreated
1 The Renewable Energy Target scheme commenced on 1 April 2001. The first compliance period being 2001 was nine months. All other compliance years are full calendar years.
2 The number of LGCs remaining can change if EGRs are amended or additional information is received by the Clean Energy Regulator for example, at the conclusion of an audit. However, under Section 19 of the Act nominated persons are no longer eligible to create LGCs in respect of the 2001–2011 generation years after 31 December 2012.
3In the 2010 generation year, less than 300 certificates remained uncreated by 16 registered persons, including three registered persons who failed to create certificates for eligible generation.
