Demand for large-scale generation certificates (LGCs) gives an indication to the market of the large-scale renewable energy build required. The 2018 statutory demand for LGCs is established by the
Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000.
The 2017 total demand for LGCs is based on relevant electricity acquisitions during 2017 and the
renewable power percentage. The liability for individual electricity retailers in 2017 is based on the relevant electricity acquisitions for each retailer during the year. The data below reflects the revised liability and surrender data. Any carried forward surplus resulting from revised liability has not been included. Any carried over shortfall amounts from 2016 are also included where applicable.
Due to some electricity retailers entering into shortfall in 2017, the 2017 LGCs surrendered is lower than the total demand for LGCs.
These data files provide information about 2017 demand for LGCs.
For a complete list of certificate shortfall information relating to all assessment years, see the
certificate shortfall register.
This data is current as at 31 August 2018.
