Energy term of the day: renewables obligation

Published

on

The renewables obligation (RO) ensures that big energy firms are doing their bit in the fight against climate change.

Initially introduced in 2002, RO replaced the non-fossil fuel obligation, which was launched in 1990. The initial expectation at launch was that energy companies would source at least 3% of their energy from a renewable energy source. This figure for 2013/14 is now 20.6%.
