Type of law

This Order amends the Renewables Obligation Order 2015 to provide for an annual renewables obligation certificates ( ROCs ) cap and makes other minor amendments. A new Schedule 6 introduces caps relevant to the number of ROCs that can be issued in respect of relevant electricity generated by certain types of generating station during each obligation period. Relevant electricity is electricity that has been generated in certain ways described in paragraph 1 of new Schedule 6 (using either biomass or bioliquid as fuel). New Schedule 6 also defines two types of generating station ( capped and mixed ) and two new types of combustion unit which a generating station may comprise ( capped and exempt ).
