It had come to our attention that the wording of the templates for the “Declaration of grid or radar delay condition” and the “Declaration of investment freezing condition” in our published guidance documents in relation to the closure of the Renewables Obligation to onshore wind in Great Britain and Northern Ireland did not reflect the meaning of the relevant legislation as properly construed.

For this reason we consulted on amending these declarations. The consultation period closed on 12 June 2017.

We have reviewed all responses and, where appropriate, updated the guidance documents. The final version of the document was published on 20 December 2017. The final versions of the Northern Ireland Renewables Obligation: Closure of the scheme to “small” onshore wind (≤5MW) guidance document, Northern Ireland Renewables Obligation: Closure of the scheme to “large” onshore wind (>5MW) guidance document, and Renewables Obligation: Closure of the scheme to onshore wind in England, Scotland and Wales guidance document were published on 20 December 2017.
