On 9 December 2016 Ofgem E-Serve published a draft of the ‘Northern Ireland Renewables Obligation: Closure of the scheme in England, Scotland and Wales’ for consultation. The document was created to provide clear guidance on the closure of the Renewables Obligation (‘the RO’) to all new capacity (except solar PV and onshore wind, which closed early) from 1 April 2017. We published a consultation to seek views from stakeholders on the clarity and detail of the draft guidance on 9 December 2016, and held workshops in London and Glasgow.
The consultation period closed on 10 February 2017. We have reviewed all responses and, where appropriate, updated the guidance document. The final version of the document was published on 13 March 2017.
The final version of the guidance was published on 13 March 2017.
