The summer budget announcement on 8 July 2015 and related Parliamentary process mean that Ofgem cannot issue Levy Exemption Certificates (LECs) for any electricity generated on or after 1 August 2015. In the past, GB electricity supply licensees have presented LECs alongside Guarantees of Origin (GoOs) under a number of GB renewable schemes. In light of the absence of LECs for output from 1 August 2015, we are now consulting on proposed changes to the process for presenting GoOs to Ofgem. This consultation seeks the views of stakeholders on proposed changes to the process for presenting GoOs to Ofgem after the removal of Climate Change Levy (CCL) exemption for renewables from 1 August 2015.
