On 26 June 2008 the Government published a statutory consultation on implementing banding of the Renewables Obligation. The consultation closed on 30 September 2008.
The Government Response to the statutory consultation, setting out our decisions on the detail of implementing banding, was published on 2 December 2008. This builds on our announcement in the Pre-Budget Report on 24 November to extend the Renewables Obligation from its current end date of 2027 to at least 2037.
Alongside the Government Response, we are publishing for reference a draft Renewables Obligation Order 2009. This remains a work in progress and will continue to be updated. This is not the version of the Order that will be laid before Parliament in Spring 2009.
