Ofgem opens consultation on proposed changes to GO process after CCL removal
This consultation seeks the views of stakeholders on proposed changes to the procedure for presenting Guarantees of Origin (GOs) to Ofgem after the removal of the Climate Change Levy (CCL) exemption for renewables from 1 August 2015. In light of the absence of Levy Excemption Certificates for output from 1 August 2015, Ofgem is now consulting on proposed changes to the way GOs are presented to the UK national authorities.
RECS International members and stakeholders are requested to review the consultation documents and respond as they see necessary. We believe this is an important step in informing Ofgem of the need to join the Association of Issuing Bodies and the EECS standard. It is our concern that a lack of participation in the AIB/EECS will result in unclear consumer information, a hindrance of the single market and difficulties in standardization around the use and retention of renewable attributes.
The consultation document can be seen here.
The consultation closes on 8 January 2016. For more information please contact the RECS International Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
