The climate change function transferred to our department from the Department of the Environment and Energy on 1 February 2020.

The Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative - Aggregated Small Energy Users) Methodology Determination 2015 was made on 25 June 2015.

Project applications to implement the Methodology Determination may be made to the Clean Energy Regulator.

About this method

This determination covers projects that reduce emissions from energy consumption for groups of households and small businesses. Project proponents — for example energy retailers — have the flexibility to determine what goods and services are most appropriate to offer to a large group of customers in order to reduce emissions under their project.

Development of this method

Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee (ERAC) advice

The ERAC's advice to the Minister regarding the suitability of the Determination to be made is published here, in accordance with Section 106(11) (C) of the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011.

Public consultation

A draft method determination for aggregated small energy users was released for public comment. Submission closed 12 December 2014.

Draft determination and explanatory statement
