The Clean Energy Regulator invites stakeholder views on its proposed approach to supporting the costs of soil sampling under the Emissions Reduction Fund.
The proposed approach would see the Clean Energy Regulator support project proponents in meeting the costs of baseline soil sampling through the advance purchase of Australian carbon credit units while also addressing data scarcity issues to inform soil carbon science and method development.
The Clean Energy Regulator is looking to offer this approach at the September auction on a pilot basis and is now seeking feedback on the proposed approach.
Submissions can be emailed to
