Executive Summary

The Energy Saver Incentive is the public name for one of the first mandatory energy efficiency target schemes in Australia. The target itself is called the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) and is a legislative requirement placed on energy retailers through the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Act 2007. Retailers must contribute to meeting this target by acquiring and surrendering Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates (VEECs). Each certificate represents 1 tonne of lifetime greenhouse gas emissions abatement beyond what would have occurred under business as usual (BAU).

VEECs are created through undertaking approved energy efficiency activities, which are deemed to produce specific amounts of greenhouse gas emissions abatement over their lifetime. In September 2011, the Department of Primary Industry (DPI) invited interested parties to provide submissions for new activity categories that could be considered for inclusion in the VEET scheme in 2012. VEET Submission Guidelines were provided to set out the submission assessment criteria. The criteria were based on the objectives of the Act and Regulations, and practical administrative considerations.

DPI has commissioned EnergyConsult to conduct a review of new activity submissions to determine their suitability for inclusion in the VEET as deeming measures. VEECs for deeming measures are calculated by determining the lifetime abatement of a measure, so that VEECs may be created upfront at the time the measure is installed. The outcome of the review is the present report.
