RPA’s proposed support mechanism to enable emerging renewable energy sources to enter the Renewables Obligation
Submitted: 24 May 2004
The RPA has been working for several months on support measures for the emerging technologies. It invited a number of organisations to a meeting to discuss the proposals, with the end result that a letter signed by a number of organisations was sent to the Energy Minister.
The proposed mechanism is described in the attached document (and provisionally referred to as Pre-commercial Renewables Offtake Contracts or ‘PreROCs’) meets the main objectives, which were:
  • To be coherent with, and complementary to the RO
  • To stimulate economies of scale
  • To focus funds on successful projects and technologies
Link below are for the proposal itself, and a press release on the joint letter.
