Auditing Accredited Certificate Providers (ACPs) and Scheme Participants will be one of the mechanisms we use to monitor compliance and performance under the Peak Demand Reduction Scheme (PDRS).

Audits ensure the PDRS is operating as designed, and that:

  • the creation of peak reduction certificates (PRCs) by ACPs results in genuine peak demand reduction capacity
  • Scheme Participants correctly calculate and meet their individual PDRS certificate targets.

Audits under the PDRS will be performed by a member of the Audit Services Panel. We expect that the process and documentation will closely align with the requirements of the Energy Savings Scheme.
