This Methodology Determination (method) provides the rules for crediting the emissions reductions achieved by improving the efficiency of common industrial and related equipment such as pumps, boilers, compressed air systems, refrigeration and industrial cooling systems. Emissions reductions can be credited under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF).
Using the method
To use this method and take part in the ERF, you need to apply to the Clean Energy Regulator. The Regulator develops the methods and manages project registration, compliance and crediting of emissions reductions for projects under the ERF.
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.
Developing the method
The Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee (ERAC) conducts public consultation before giving advice about making or varying a method. Once finalised the ERAC advises the Minister on whether the new or varied method meets the offsets integrity standards.
