Method development tracker

04 March 2021

The Clean Energy Regulator is responsible for the development of new methods under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF). The current method development priorities are:

Visit the Method development page for information on how methods are prioritised.

The Clean Energy Regulator develops priority methods through a co-design process with industry, potential end-users, scientists and technical experts and the Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee (ERAC). We have a KPI to develop new methods within 12 months of work starting unless intractable scientific or technical issues emerge.

We are committed to transparency and accountability. The method development tracker charts progress for each of the priority methods, providing stakeholders with visibility of the method development process.

Key achievements

In working through the method development process for the five priority methods our most recent achievements are:

  • Two co-design forums held with over 100 stakeholders in November 2020 to discuss our 'rules of engagement' in undertaking co-design.
  • The first CCS co-design workshop held in December 2020 to seek feedback on early drafts of a simple method guide and draft method.
  • The first soil carbon co-design workshop held in December 2020 to seek feedback on early drafts of a simple method guide and draft method.
  • Undertaking early thinking and scoping of the blue carbon, biomethane and plantation forestry methods.
