The Clean Energy Regulator has just announced the date of the fifth (and maybe final) ERF auction – Wednesday 5 April 2017 and Thursday 6 April 2017.
Of the original $2.55B fund, around $400M remains and this could possibly be the last auction (depending on price and volume bid). The Turnbull Government is still yet to commit to any further funding of the ERF at this point in time.
The key dates for the auction are below. Entering into the scheme is a complex and time-consuming process, so if you have a carbon saving project in-mind, time to get busy! Feel free to contact us if you have a project in mind and/or would like further information regarding the ERF.
