What is an LGC?

Australia’s Renewable Energy Target encompasses two certificate programs: the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target (LRET) and the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES). Under the LRET, a Renewable Energy Certificate Market is established to encourage the development of renewable energy power stations in Australia. This market facilitates the generation and sale of certificates, known as large-scale generation certificates (LGCs).

Power stations accredited under the LRET are authorized to produce LGCs for each Mega Watt Hour (MWh) of electricity derived from their renewable energy sources. These LGCs are then available for sale to:

  1. Liable entities within the Renewable Energy Target (primarily electricity retailers) mandated to procure LGCs from the market. Subsequently, these entities surrender the certificates annually to the Clean Energy Regulator (CER). The required quantity of LGCs to be submitted by liable entities is determined each year based on the renewable power percentage.
  2. Companies and individuals, through the secondary Market, seeking to substantiate their claims of emissions reduction through utilization of renewable electricity.

Who we work with

TEM’s portfolio of LGCs includes qualified power plants from across the Victorian and New South Wales landscape producing electricity through Solar and Wind sources.

Where does my money go?

Your purchase goes to the procurement of fully verified and independently audited carbon offset projects. TEM’s operational, due-diligence, risk management and marketing costs are also included in the list price. By purchasing from these projects, you are mobilising capital to support the project’s ongoing operations and benefits, alongside of ensuring measurable emissions reductions and avoidance.

What goes into pricing TEM's offsets on this site?

You may find a difference between the cost of projects listed on this site and the average prices listed on the wholesale carbon market/s. That’s because TEM offers projects where we have gone the extra mile to ensure their integrity and deliver you the end-to-end service that others won’t. Our pricing is fully inclusive of the end-to-end services to ensure integrity, including:

  • The cost to source, deliver and/or procure projects – Sourcing, purchasing and holding carbon units.
  • TEM’s proprietary due diligence and risk management for each project – Put simply, we do the work to limit the chance that you will support a project that doesn’t deliver measurable and long-term carbon abatement.
  • Our retirement process – Following each purchase, every carbon offset purchased on this site can be transparently traced to a retired carbon unit listed on an independent registry.
    What will I receive with my purchase?

    Once we’ve received your payment, we will:

    • Send you content and copy relating to the projects you’re supporting. Expect this within 1x business day of your purchase!
    • Add your company to our customer page. This will show: the projects you have supported and the volume of offsets per project. We won’t share any financial info.
    • Customers who choose to receive a company-specific retirement certificate will receive a certificate post-payment. You will receive an email once your order is placed to confirm retirement copy for your certificate. If you DO NOT require a company-specific retirement certificate, evidence of retirement will be added to your profile on this website within a month from payment. The cost for a company-specific retirement certificate = $100 per project. Adding this to your cart will refresh the page, so please wait a few seconds if you do select “Yes” for the cart to refresh. Note: you will need individual retirement for Climate Active and other certification purposes.

    • We will then send you evidence of that retirement, which includes: the listing on each registry that relates to the offsets you have purchased, a TEM-branded retirement certificate, and a link to the customer page (point 2 above).

    • Keep you updated on new projects as they’re added to TEM Online. Of course-you can choose to opt out of those emails!
