does not attend, the caseflow coordinator

     (a)  must notify the clerk that the respondent has not attended, and

     ESTABLISHING ENERGY EFFICIENCY CREDITS

     1  For the purpose of establishing credits under section 9.4 of this
Regulation in relation to a gas plant, the Minister may determine the
amount equal to the present value as of the date the credits are
established of the costs of processing the Crown's royalty share of natural
gas or products obtained from natural gas that the Minister estimates will

any, of electric energy, steam or both to be produced in a dedicated cogen
plant.

     2   Credits to be established under section 9.4(2) of this Regulation
in respect of a gas plant shall be established in accordance with the

of the gas plant under section 1.

     3(1)  Subject to subsection (2), the applicable percentage to be used
in determining credits under section 9.4(2) of this Regulation is the
percentage specified in column 1 of this subsection that corresponds to the
period specified in column 2 of this subsection during which the equipment
of the cogen plant referred to in section 9.4(1)(a) or (b) of this
