The Department for Enterprise, Trade and Investment recently published the outcome of the most recent review of the Northern Ireland Renewables Obligation (NIRO). The review looks at all types of renewables that come under the NIRO and sets the number of ROCs per MWh that each technology will receive until the next review. Only new projects installed in the outlined timeframes are subject to these ROC banding levels. Existing projects remain on the ROC level that was present at the time of commissioning and OFGEM accreditation.
We are mainly concerned with medium scale wind at MPG and the ROC review has deemed the the 4 ROC per MWh set 2010 is still the most appropriate level of support at the minute. This is good news for those developing wind project up to 250kW, however complacency would be wrong as these support levels are almost guaranteed to change over the next few years.
DETI have clearly outlined their intention to introduce Feed In Tariffs (FITs) for large scale renewables in 2017 and it is apparent that small scale renewables in Northern Ireland will be moved on to such a scheme prior to this. April 2015 would be a best guess estimate for this scheme to be introduced but it is very difficult to second guess at what level this will be pitched. However, if trends seen in large scale wind support levels are anything to go by (10% drop in ROC levels) do not be surprised if the FITs are not quite as attractive as our current 4 ROCs scheme.
