- Descripción del IF:
Under the Renewables Obligation Orders, electricity suppliers are obliged to prove that a certain percentage of electricity supplied to final consumers within the United Kingdom is generated from renewable sources. This obligation can be met by presenting Renewables Obligation Certificates (ROCs, SROCs in Scotland, NIROCs in Northern Ireland) to the regulatory authority, or by paying into a 'buy-out' fund.
This framework supports systems or plants above 5 MW. Plants between 50 kW and 5 MW located in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland) are entitled to choose between the ROC scheme and the FIT.

- Principales resultados alcanzados:
In the first year of the scheme, April 2002 to March 2003, suppliers met their Renewables Obligation, which equated to three per cent of the electricity supplied to customers in Great Britain, by either producing ROCs or using a buy-out clause, which allowed them to pay £30 per MWh for any shortfall (rising to £30.51 for 2003-2004 obligation period).
A combination of ROCs and buy-out could also be used to meet the Obligation.
505 generating stations were accredited by Ofgem under the Renewables Obligation in the first year of the scheme.
A total of 5,562,669 Renewables Obligation Certificates and Scottish Renewables Obligation Certificates were issued in the first year.
Out of 38 supply companies in England and Wales who had an obligation, 12 met their obligation wholly through the production of ROCs, and nine suppliers paid 100 per cent buy-out (£30 per MWh). In Scotland, 28 suppliers had an obligation, of which 16 met their obligation wholly through producing ROCs, with four suppliers paying 100 per cent buy-out.
23 suppliers received buy-out redistribution totalling £79,251,930 under the Renewables Obligation with 19 suppliers receiving buy-out redistribution totalling £11,267,124 under the Renewables Obligation Scotland.
