Detail of outcome
This consultation is now closed. The Government would like to thank respondents for their contributions to the consultation. Full details of the Government’s decisions are set out in the Government response which was published on 25 July 2012 and can be found below. A press notice and Parliamentary statement is available in the News section of the DECC website.
The consultation invited comments on the Government’s proposals for the levels of banded support available for renewable electricity generation under the Renewables Obligation (RO) for the period 2013-17. The consultation applied to England and Wales only. Separate consultations were undertaken on proposals on banded support in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
The RO is currently the main financial mechanism by which the Government incentivises deployment of large-scale renewable electricity generation. Banding reviews ensure that as market conditions and innovation within sectors change and evolve, renewables developers continue to receive the appropriate level of support necessary to maintain investments.
