The Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) has online systems to support its operation. A description of each of these is provided below.

The ESS Registry

The Registry is an online system which allows relevant participants to register, transfer and surrender energy savings certificates (ESCs). It can be accessed by all participants in the ESS and members of the public.

For more information on the Registry refer to ESS Registry

The ESS Portal

The ESS portal is a web-based application which we use to manage compliance of and communicate with all Accredited Certificate Providers (ACPs) in the ESS. This includes management of all audit activity and changes to accreditations. All ACPs and auditors use this system.

For more information and access to user guides, ACPs refer to Online systems and auditors refer to ESS Portal.

The ELT Portal

The ELT Portal is an online system used to manage applications for acceptance of Emerging Lighting Technologies (ELTs) for use in upgrades under the Commercial Lighting method. ELTs must meet certain safety and performance requirements and be accepted for use before ESCs can be created from its use in a lighting upgrade.

The Product Search function is used to find ELTs that have been accepted for use under the Commercial Lighting method.

Refer to Commercial Lighting Requirements for more information.
