Last month we published the total (UK obligation of 127,815,053 Renewables Obligation Certificates (ROCs)). Since then, suppliers have presented  109,312,159  ROCs towards this obligation. The deadline to present ROCs was 1 September. Suppliers who did not meet their entire obligation through presenting ROCs will, between them, meet the approximate 18,502,894 ROC shortfall through buy-out and late payments. The deadline to make buy-out payments was 31 August, while the deadline for late payments is 31 October.

We will confirm the amounts suppliers have made in buy-out payments, and what we have redistributed back to them, after we withdraw our administration costs in October. We will then confirm the amount of late payments made by suppliers and redistributed by us, together with the recycle value for the 2021/22 period in November or December.
