The REC Registry is an online system allowing Renewable Energy Target
participants to create, transfer and surrender renewable energy certificates.

What the system is used for

The Renewable Energy Certificate Registry (REC Registry) is an online system allowing Renewable Energy Target participants to create, transfer and surrender renewable energy certificates.

Through the REC Registry, users can:

  • create large-scale generation certificates (LGCs) for power stations
  • create small-scale technology certificates (STCs) for small generation units (small-scale solar panel, wind and hydro systems) and solar water heaters
  • surrender certificates to the Clean Energy Regulator to meet annual obligations
  • view the accreditation of eligible renewable energy power stations in Australia
  • transfer certificate ownership between parties, and
  • find information about the certificate market.

The REC Registry also provides access to public registers including the:

The agency records all transactions performed through the REC Registry and uses this information to manage, audit and report on certificates and the operation of the LRET and the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme.

How to get started

You will need a REC Registry account if you intend to:

  • create STCs for a solar water heater, small-scale solar panel, wind or hydro installation that you own
  • create STCs for installations on behalf of others
  • apply to accredit a renewable energy power station
  • create LGCs for an accredited power station
  • purchase, transfer or surrender of STCs or LGCs, or
  • use the STC Clearing House.

For more information, please see Create an account.

Using a registered agent

People who choose to use a registered agent to conduct any of the above transactions on their behalf do not need to register for a REC Registry account. Registration to create, buy, sell, or surrender certificates may incur a fee, depending on the user requirements.
