How we register Victorian energy efficiency certificates (VEECs)
When accredited persons create Victorian energy efficiency certificates (VEECs) for installations undertaken as part of the Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program, they are submit the VEEC creation activity to us for assessment.
We assess submissions each week, and will seek for further information if required. Each accredited person and activity has been assigned a risk rating, which informs our consideration of information requirements. We also use 'risk flags' and trends analysis that direct our assessment on claimed VEECs.
Our assessments determine whether an installation complies with program requirements for the particular activity. Assessments time frames can range from seven to 42 days, depending on the risk rating of the activity and accredited person.
During our assessment we will check that:
- the activity is not an duplicate of a previous activity
- the product type and quantity matches what has been claimed
- all aspects of the activity are accurately reflected in the submitted information
- the abatement corresponding to the VEECs created is realised
- the documentation provided meets our compliance requirements.
If the information provided by an accredited person is insufficient to demonstrate that VEECs have been properly created, the accredited person may withdraw the certificates.
Once satisfied that the VEECs have been properly created, we will approve them, and issue an invoice, for registration.
The VEECs are officially registered when we receive payment of the registration fee. We register VEECs daily so accredited persons should receive their registered VEECs within a day or two of making payment.
Once registered, the accredited person can trade the VEECs, or transfer them to another organisation.
Required documentation to create VEECs for each activity
Each activity has specific evidentiary documentation requirements for creating VEECs. Detailed instructions are available in the activity guide from the relevant activity web page.
