Consultation on the grandfathering policy of support for Dedicated Biomass, Anaerobic Digestion and Energy from Waste under the Renewables Obligation

Following representations from industry, and discussions with banks and equity investors, we announced we would revisit our current grandfathering policy for dedicated biomass, anaerobic digestion and energy from waste. We do not intend to revisit grandfathering policy for any other technology in this consultation.

The purpose of this consultation is to:

  • seek views on whether our preferred option is the best way forward
  • gather evidence on the costs for dedicated biomass, AD and EfW, and the proportion of costs attributable to non fuel costs
  • test our assumptions over investor reaction to grandfathering and therefore the likely amount and timing of investment that would come forward under different
  • seek views as to whether there are any other unintended consequences of our preferred option

Deadline: 28th May
