Renewables Obligation Order 2009 (S.I. No. 785 of 2009).

Type of law

This Order concerns discharge a renewables obligation by electricity suppliers, licensed under the Electricity Act 1989, who supply electricity in England or Wales. It also provides that renewables obligation shall be administered by the Gas and Electricity Markets Authority who is responsible for issuing renewables obligation certificates to renewable electricity generators on their renewable output. Instead of producing the required number of certificates in respect of all or part of their renewables obligation, a supplier is permitted to make a payment to the Authority. Renewable energy may be from waste or biomass and certificates may be issued in respect of electricity produced under an arrangement which was originally made pursuant to a Non-Fossil Fuel Order ("NFFO arrangement"). The Order also provides for calculation of the renewable output of a generating station.
