About the REC Registry

Error: Please check and correct the following issues before continuing:

The REC Registry is an online system that:

  • provides the general public with basic information and facts about the renewable energy certificate market
  • lists the accreditation of eligible renewable energy power stations in Australia
  • 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 Act).

The Clean Energy Regulator uses the REC Registry to manage, audit and report on:

  • the participants within the renewable energy certificate market, and
  • the renewable energy market as a whole.

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

The REC Registry records the details and history of each individual certificate from creation, through any transfer of ownership and its eventual surrender.

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.
