Identify the certificate schemes available for your projects

Australia’s environmental certificate schemes can be challenging to navigate. Shell Energy can help.

Australian Environmental Certificate Schemes

  • Accredited providers, expert advice

    Our energy engineers are trained in best practice energy measurement and verification methodology (International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol).

    We can provide you with insights on each of the certificate markets and assist you to maximise value across the different schemes, including providing certificate creation services for many of the available schemes.

  • Measurable and verified results

    For some schemes, energy savings or abatement must be independently measured and then subject to an independent audit.

    It is important to have an energy expert onboard early to ensure you comply with any scheme requirements, such as measuring your energy baseline before you start your project.
