The government has responded to its consultation, issued in May, on the notification process for new build dedicated biomass projects under the Renewables Obligation (RO). The RO, which was established in 2002, requires UK electricity suppliers to source a specified proportion of the electricity they provide to customers from eligible renewable sources.
Projects within the 400MW new build cap will be covered by the Department of Energy and Climate Change’s grandfathering policy; once the cap is triggered, the government will consider consulting on proposals to exclude any further new build dedicated biomass capacity from the RO. The government confirmed a combined heat and power (CHP) station with partial or full CHP quality assurance certification will be permanently exempt from the cap, even if the station subsequently loses its certification. The priority application window for the process will run from 21 August to 10 September. Detailed guidance on the notification process will be available by 21 August.
