What is the Renewable Energy Target?

The Renewable Energy Target is an Australian Federal Government scheme designed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases in the electricity sector and encourage the additional generation of electricity from sustainable and renewable sources. The Large-scale Renewable Energy Scheme creates a financial incentive for the establishment and growth of renewable energy power stations, such as wind and solar farms, or hydro-electric power stations.

What is an ‘LGC’?

LGCs or Large-scale Generation Certificates are created for every 1000 kWh of eligible electricity generated from a power station’s renewable energy sources.

LGCs are then traded to companies to surrender towards their liabilities under the Commonwealth Government’s Renewable Energy Target.

How does GreenPower work?

As an accredited GreenPower Provider, Next Business Energy purchases accredited GreenPower LGCs for the % of electricity usage you nominate. We charge you for Next GreenPower at your nominated %, and then we buy GreenPower accredited LGCs to offset carbon emissions, for the amount you nominate.

Each year an independent auditor confirms that Next Business Energy has purchased and surrendered GreenPower certificates, for your Next GreenPower purchases. This helps Australia meet its carbon emission targets.

The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment acts as the national GreenPower Program Manager on behalf of the National GreenPower Steering Group.

Next GreenPower, the Renewable Energy Target and meeting your carbon reduction goals.  

Each year Next Business energy must purchase and surrender LGC’s to meet our obligations under the Commonwealth’s Renewable Energy Target. Each year the Clean Energy Regulator sets the Renewable Power Percentage (RPP) which determines how many LGCs Next Business Energy must surrender to meet the target. In 2021 the RPP has been set at 18.54%. This means that in 2021, the amount of RRP has already been contributed towards carbon offset activities.

Next GreenPower can then be used to reach the balance of a business’s carbon offset or emissions goal.
