Emission Reporting
•   Will be some overlap with SESP 09/10
    participants

•   States are working with Australian Government
    to streamline reporting processes
Recent Changes to SESP
   Amendments to the Clean Energy Act 2008
    were made following the assent of the Mines
    and Energy Legislation Amendment Act 2010
    (MELA) on 21 April 2010. The amendments
    resulted in significant changes to the SESP
    Program.

   The most significant change in the MELA
    amendment is that there is no reference to the
    SESP participants in 'Levels' and a change to
    the verification year.
   Section 7 of the Act now states:
         s7 Meaning of energy use threshold
         ‘The energy use threshold for a financial year is—
         (a)      for the financial year ending on 30 June
                  2010—100 terajoules of energy or more, but less
                  than 500 terajoules of energy; or
         (b)      for a financial year ending on 30 June 2011, 2012,
                  2013 or 2014—30 terajoules of energy or more,
                  but less than 500 terajoules of energy; or
         (c)      for a financial year ending on or after 30 June
                  2015—10 terajoules of energy or more, but     less
                  than 500 terajoules of energy’.
s7A Verification year for a business
(1) The first verification year for a registered
    participating business is the 1 year period
    nominated by the business as its first verification
    year in its application for registration under
    section 11.

(2)   The second and each subsequent verification
      year for a registered participating business is the
      1 year period that ends on the day that is 5 years
      after the end of the preceding verification year for
      the business.'
