We apologise for any concerns or inconvenience caused by these issues.


The REC Registry is an online system that:

  • facilitates the creation, registration, transfer and surrender of large-scale generation certificates (LGCs) and small-scale technology certificates (STCs)
  • tracks the ownership and status of all certificates
  • provides access to the STC clearing house, and
  • maintains various public registers as required by the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000 (the REE Act).


All certificates must be created in the REC Registry before they can be bought, sold traded or surrendered.

You must hold an account and be registered as a REC Registry user to create, view or transfer certificates. If you do not have an account and would like to apply for one, click on the 'Apply for an account' tab above.
