Demand for large-scale generation certificates (LGCs) gives an indication to the market of the large-scale renewable energy build required. The 2019 demand for LGCs is established by the
Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000. See
renewable power percentage for more information on setting the 2019 renewable power percentage.
The 2018 total demand for LGCs is based on relevant electricity acquisitions during 2018 and the
renewable power percentage. Any carried over shortfall amounts from 2017 are also included where applicable.
Due to some electricity retailers entering into shortfall in 2018, the 2018 LGCs surrendered is lower than the total demand for LGCs.
These data files provide information about 2018 demand for LGCs.
For a complete list of certificate shortfall information relating to all assessment years, see the
certificate shortfall register.
