RENEWABLE GAS CERTIFICATION
Development of our gas certification process has taken place in consultation with industry and stakeholders. More information on each of the steps is below.
We have sought feedback from eventual users of the renewable gas certificate system, and other valued members and stakeholders of the industry, on key topics related to certification of renewable gas.
Submissions on the initial discussion paper (below) have now closed.
Please contact us if you have any other questions.
Following the initial consultation, we published:
The formal consultation period closed on 9am on 2 August 2021. The initial rules were published on 6 September 2021.
Questions we asked respondents to consider included:
Do the proposed rules adequately support your objectives as a producer or consumer of renewable gas?
Could aspects of the proposed rules be strengthened or improved in order to increase the credibility of gas certification in New Zealand?
Do you recommend any additions to the proposed rules that will increase its operational utility for yourself or other users of the system?
Method for assessment of renewable gas production - consultation
A critical part of the process of certification is the method for assessment of the production device from which certificates originate. This method will determine the characteristics that are to be assessed, and the method by which this assessment will happen.
Given its importance, Certified Energy has sought industry consultation on the assessment method, before finalising an initial assessment method.
This consultation has now closed.
