Electricity retailers can engage in contracts with abatement providers who will then deliver approved activities on their behalf.
The EEIS is not a certificate registry scheme. In this way it is similar to the South Australian Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme, and different from the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Scheme and NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS). Instead, retailers earn abatement through contracts made directly with abatement providers.
Integrated activities may be developed for EEIS. Under this approach, the Territory would enter into agreements with the NSW Government to closely cooperate on scheme policy and administration.
Abatement providers have played an active role in shaping the EEIS, as can be seen in the 2015 and 2016 stakeholder forum reports. See these links for more on EEIS activities, and the EEIS legislation.
