The Clean Energy Regulator recommends you draw up a plan for the monitoring, data collecting and record keeping required for a project report as specified in Part 5 of the method. The means of collecting and recording data will need to be in place from the start of the project. Should a project report and associated audit show that data collecting and record keeping has not been in place for the entire reporting period, ACCUs may not be issued for some or all of that reporting period.
When developing your plan, make sure you have the right controls and processes around your data. Ensure that you are able to maintain your data in the events such as a server failure or computer theft.
Monitoring an aviation project involves collecting service unit and energy consumption data for each aircraft at the level of phase and route. The method includes several options for collecting this data, including approaches that are used in the aviation industry to collect data for other purposes. For details of which parameters to monitor see the table in Section 26 in the method. If you are unable to monitor any of the specified parameters during a reporting period you must estimate their value (Section 27 in the method).
