This page is designed to provide power stations with forms and resources to assist them participate in the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target.
The Clean Energy Regulator may update or remove this information as required and you are encouraged to check using the latest version of each document.
Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000 (the Act) and regulation 7 of the
Renewable Energy (Electricity) Amendment (Transitional Provision) Regulations 2010 (the Regulations) provide that: A party to a contract mentioned in sub item 7 (1) of Schedule 2 to the Act for the supply or transfer of renewable energy certificates (however described) may apply to the Regulator for an annual transfer number for each year in which certificates will be transferred under the contract.
This form should be used if you are seeking to change the nominated person for an accredited power station.
Section 30B of the Act provides that an application to change the nominated person for an accredited power station can only be made by a registered person who is a stakeholder of that power station (that is, an owner or operator).

This form can be completed by any person who owns or operates components of an electricity generation system together with the applicant making either of the following applications:
A written statement is required from each other Stakeholder indicating they agree to the making of the application.

documentasset: Waste coal mine gas eligibility sheet
Complete the waste coal mine gas (WCMG) eligibility sheet in supplement to the 'Application for Accreditation of a Power Station', if waste coal mine gas is used as a fuel source in the power station.
Documentasset: LGC Methodology Builder
This Excel-based tool simplifies the process of formulating an appropriate large-scale generation certificate (LGC) methodology for non-complex power stations. Nominated persons can use this tool for developing LGC methodologies at accreditation, for power station component variations and for temporary variations. This tool is only available in excel so we recommend using it via desktop. This tool may be subject to updates based on user feedback.
These checklists specify the
information and documentary requirements for a properly made application for power station accreditation under s13(2) of the Act. Applications for power station accreditation submitted through the REC Registry containing the information and document requirements set out in these checklists can proceed directly to fee payment and then will be considered as ‘properly made’.
As the popularity of commercial-size solar panel systems increases, more system owners may be attracted to the benefits of generating renewable electricity.
Depending on the size of the system, owners of commercial-sized installations may be eligible to participate in either the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme or the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target. All businesses who are considering installing solar systems are encouraged to research which scheme under the Renewable Energy Target is right for them.
This webinar discusses options under both schemes with a particular focus on requirements for the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target.
