This publication provides a summary of responses to the technical consultation on the draft Renewables Obligation Order 2015. The draft Order was laid before Parliament on 21 July 2015 and subject to Parliamentary approval will come into effect from 1 December 2015.
DECC has published the draft Renewables Obligation Order 2015 for a technical consultation. The changes in the draft legislation are intended to (i) consolidate and update the Renewables Obligation Order 2009 and (ii) introduce changes to biomass sustainability and reporting criteria and outstanding RO transition measures previously consulted on in 2013 and 2014. We intend to lay the draft Order in Parliament in Spring 2015 with a view, subject to parliamentary approval, to bringing the draft Order into force on 1 September 2015 (1 October 2015 for the changes to the biomass sustainability changes).
