Bingo! Emissions Reduction Fund: NEXT AUCTION DATE ANNOUNCED

August 11, 2015 Louisa Kiely

As predicted here, and hinted at conference, the next round of the Emissions Reduction Fund is upon us! 

The actual auction will be held on the 4th and 5th of November. Don’t forget however, that it takes time to put in your application for a project. AND to have it approved. 

The last date for projects to be submitted in full is the 18th September. That is a complete application, ready to be assessed. (Sometimes it takes a while from the first application to the final one). 

Just a quick reminder that for Landholders, potential project include: 

  1. Emissions reductions from the beef herd, and from improving fuel efficiency in mobile and stationary equipment. This includes tractors, trucks, irrigation pumps etc. There are specific emissions reduction opportunities for those with an irrigated cotton enterprise as well.
  2. Sequestration (or storage of carbon) in both trees and soils. There are a number of available methods for tree sequestration and two for soils.

$250 Million flowing into Western NSW doesn’t have to be the end of the story. Your region can benefit as well – but to have your chance at a Government Guaranteed (yes, even if the Government changes) contract at a known price for the next 5-10 years, you have to engage.

We know not everyone could make it to the conference. So, we’ve decided to mount 3 one hour webinars to help get you up to speed. AND in time to then get your application in.


Webinar One: Monday August 17th: 12 noon. – 1.15pm
“Direct Action and the Emissions Reduction Fund- How does it all work?” 

Webinar Two: Wednesday 19th August 12 noon – 1.15pm.
“Which ERF method is best for me? – Choosing a method to enable participation in the Emissions Reduction Fund” 

Webinar Three: Friday August 21st. 12 noon – 1.15pm.
“Apply to register a project Under the Emissions Reduction Fund – Application requirements, time lines” 

Cost: $55 per webinar. OR 3 Webinars for $150

REGISTER HERE NOW to secure your place. 

See you then!
