Online systems

Registry

The Registry is an online database which records the registration, transfer and ultimate surrender of energy savings certificates.  It can be accessed by all participants and members of the public. More information is available about how it works in the Registry section of this website and under Registering and trading ESCs below. 

ESS Portal

The ESS Portal is a web-based application used by Accredited Certificate Providers (ACPs) and Auditors.  As an ACP, you use this application to request any changes to your accreditation, track the status of your audits, and submit implementation data sheets for the registration of ESCs.  We use it to manage compliance of your accreditation and to keep you updated in relation to the audit and amendment process.

The primary contact of each ACP has the ability to add more users. Please ensure contact details are kept up to date, so that you receive all relevant communications relating to your accreditations and the ESS.  Refer to the ACP User Guide - ESS Portal for more information

If you experience any technical difficulties with the ESS Portal please contact us.  Include a brief description of the problem you are experiencing, and attach a screenshot of the issue if possible.  Support will be available Monday to Friday within business hours and we will do our best to contact you within one business day of receiving your request. 

ELT Portal for lighting technologies

The Emerging Lighting Technology (ELT) Portal  is used for the acceptance of emerging lighting technologies (ELTs). A searchable list of accepted lighting technologies is also available.

You will need to use the ELT Portal if your activity involves installation of ELTs under the Commercial Lighting method.  Detailed lighting requirements are available to support the use of the ELT Portal.
