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. You will need to be able to maintain your data in the event of an emergency such as a computer failure.
Monitoring involves collecting service unit and energy consumption data for each sub-group (for a group of vehicles project) or each individual vehicle (for an aggregated individual vehicles project). The method includes a number of options for collecting this data, including approaches that are used in various transportation industries to collect data for other purposes.
Section 31 of the method specifies the records which need to be kept for each reporting period for each vehicle in the project. For details of which parameters to monitor see the table in Section 33 in the method. If you are unable to monitor any of the specified parameters during a reporting period, you must estimate their value (Section 34 in the method).
