Securing a carbon abatement contract at an auction has a range of benefits:
Each auction is different, with a changing mix of competitors and prices. We encourage you to bid competitively to secure a carbon abatement contract.
The auction 15 guidelines are available on our website.
Please review the guidelines before participating in auction 15. Applicants with an emissions avoidance project are strongly recommended to understand the changes associated with the Safeguard Mechanism (Crediting) Amendment Bill 2022 and included in the auction 15 guidelines and latest Code of Common Terms.
We are only offering optional delivery contracts at auction 15. Optional delivery contracts offer you the option, but not the obligation, to sell ACCUs to the Australian Government at a set price.
