Aggregated small energy users method

This Methodology Determination (method) provides the rules for crediting the emissions reductions from energy consumption for groups of households and small businesses as part of the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF). Project proponents such as energy retailers can determine which goods and services are most appropriate to offer to a large group of customers in order to reduce emissions and receive credits under the ERF.

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.
