Who is involved
This page describes who participates in the Energy Savings Scheme and who monitors their compliance
Accredited Certificate Providers
Accredited Certificate Providers are voluntary participants in the Energy Savings Scheme. To participate organisations apply for accreditation to create energy savings certificates from energy savings projects. Once accredited, they are subject to the conditions of their accreditation, which set out their compliance obligations.

Liable Entities (or Scheme Participants)
Electricity retailers and certain other parties who buy or sell electricity in NSW are mandatory participants in the Energy Savings Scheme and are called Liable Entities (or Scheme Participants). Liable Entities are required to meet individual energy savings targets based on their share of the electricity market.
Each Liable Entity must calculate its individual energy savings target and obtain and surrender energy savings certificates to meet its target. If a Liable Entity does not surrender sufficient energy savings certificates, it will have an energy savings shortfall and may be subject to a shortfall penalty.
Each Liable Entity is required to submit an annual statement to IPART to demonstrate that they have met their individual energy savings target.

Companies may apply to IPART, as Scheme Administrator to join the Energy Savings Scheme Audit Services Panel. Members of the panel audit Liable Entities and Accredited Certificate Providers to ensure their ongoing compliance with the Energy Savings Scheme.
