Facilities required to report under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Scheme, other than facilities covered by the Safeguard Mechanism,can receive Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs) for emission reductions achieved by projects registered under the ACCU Scheme .
This methodology determination (method) sets out the rules for those projects. The method also provides flexibility to project proponents to determine the emission reduction activities most appropriate for their facility.
Using the method
To use this method and participate in the ACCU Scheme, you need to apply to the Clean Energy Regulator. The Regulator manages project registration, compliance and crediting of emissions reductions for projects under the ACCU Scheme.
Visit the Regulator’s website for:
- information on the method and how to use it
- project planning guidance, including eligibility requirements and how to apply.
Consultation on the method
Read the Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee’s (ERAC’s) advice to the Minister on making the method in 2015 (1.16MB PDF).
