The Renewables Obligation Order 2011: phased offshore accreditation and requirements for sustainable fuel
In an annual review of The Renewables Obligation Order 2009, the Department of Energy and Climate Change is proposing a number of significant changes.
The amendments are being considered as part of a consultation exercise due to be completed by 19 October 2010. While not as far-reaching as in some previous years, they will still have a significant impact for those operating in the renewable energy sector.
One particular area of focus is offshore wind and new rules around phased commissioning. Also, a set of criteria is laid out to provide definitive guidance on the minimum standards for biomass, bio-mass and bioliquids.
To help breakdown what the changes mean, the potential issues raised, and offer-up some ideas for consideration, Wragge & Co's energy experts take a close look at the detail.
