11 July 2017

Projects registered under the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative – Landfill Gas) Methodology Determination 2015 receive credits over a seven year period. The Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee is currently reviewing the landfill gas method to decide whether it is appropriate to extend the crediting period for eligible offsets projects and invited submissions from stakeholders.

AGL Energy Services Pty Limited, a subsidiary of AGL Energy (AGL), has nine landfill gas electricity generation facilities, seven of which are contracted under the Emissions Reduction Fund.

AGL made this submission in response to Emissions Reduction Fund Crediting Period Extension Review.
