You will require accreditation if you intend to create
energy efficiency certificates. Energy efficiency certificates are given to businesses or
industries when they undertake a prescribed energy saving activity. An energy
saving activity reduces the amount of greenhouse emissions that would otherwise
have been produced. These activities include:
- modification of an appliance, structure or
equipment that leads to a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
- replacement of a system or equipment that leads
to a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
- purchase and installation of an appliance or
equipment that has a lower greenhouse gas intensity than a comparable product
- installation of appliance or any equipment that
leads to reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
Large electricity and gas retailers in Victoria will be
required to purchase and surrender certificates on an annual basis in
proportion to their annual acquisitions of gas and electricity.
