  • FIT
  • RO

We have published draft guidance for participants of the Renewables Obligation (RO) and Feed-in Tariffs (FIT) schemes who are considering co-locating electricity storage facilities with their accredited RO generating station or FIT installation. We have developed this guidance to provide clarity to participants about the treatment of storage facilities within the framework of the schemes in anticipation of increased uptake of co-located storage.  

We invite stakeholders to provide feedback on the draft guidance. The closing date for providing comment is 8 February 2018.

The cover letter outlines our reasons for developing the guidance and the information we are seeking from stakeholders. Annex 1 provides a copy of the draft guidance.

We are holding workshops in January, which we invite stakeholders to attend to discuss the guidance. These will take place in:

  • Glasgow on Thursday 11 January 2018,
  • London on Tuesday 16 January 2018, and
  • an online webinar on Wednesday 17 January 2018.

If you would like to attend one of these events, please sign up by email to by Friday 5 January 2018. Due to limited space, attendance is limited to 1 person per organisation. Any additional attendees will be added to a waiting list.
