Our agency and focus

We are responsible for administering legislation that will reduce carbon emissions and increase the use of clean energy.

Establishment and focus

The Clean Energy Regulator was established by the Clean Energy Regulator Act 2011. Our agency began operations on 2 April 2012.

As a regulator our focus is on our participants and ensuring they comply with their obligations and are able to access the incentives afforded to them under our schemes. Our strength lies in administering our schemes, harnessing our data and in engaging with our participants, all of which is underpinned by our ability to work closely with our wide range of participants, partners and stakeholders.
