Phase 2 changes are underway for the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES). Under the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Regulations 2001 (REE Regulations), the Clean Energy Regulator (CER) must publicly consult on whether it should nominate any person or organisation to publish the product listing for solar panels and inverters under the SRES.
This consultation is being undertaken to ensure that the best possible body and processes for component listing are thoroughly explored before any decision on nomination is made.
The CER is undertaking public consultation to gain feedback on whether it should nominate any person or organisation to publish the lists of approved products. It is also asking those submitting responses to provide reasons for their response. Please note, the CER is not seeking nominations of specific people or bodies at this time – only whether the CER should use its nomination power.
The feedback you give the CER will help it decide whether the CER should proceed to the stage of requesting bodies to make formal applications to be nominated to publish product listing.
The consultation form will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
Privacy Collection Statement
The CER will use the personal information it collects during this consultation for the purpose of public consultation on whether the CER should nominate an organisation to publish the product listing for solar panels and inverters under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme.
Submissions should be made using the CER’s consultation form or another text readable document format.
The CER prefer that all submissions be publicly available to facilitate an informed and transparent consultative process. Submissions will be treated as public documents unless otherwise requested.
If you wish to submit confidential information you should:
- Clearly identify the information that is the subject of the confidentiality claim
- Provide a non-confidential version of your submission in a form suitable for publication
All non-confidential submissions will be published on our website.
Requests for access to confidential comments will be determined in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act).
Responses made though this automated form will also be accessible by the Smart Energy Council, but will not be used in any way other than facilitating your submission.
