The Renewables Obligation
Pages 5

In 2002 a new scheme replaced the NFFO – the Renewables Obligation. A new system was necessary following the restructuring of the electricity market. Under the Obligation, electricity supply companies had to move in stages so that by 2010 they would be obtaining 10 per cent of their power from renewable sources. This was in line with the national target set by the Labour Government of obtaining 10 per cent of UK electricity from renewables by 2010.
