Opportunities still available for ROCs

There are still opportunities for companies to buy large scale assets that qualify for Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs).

Projects not accredited before 31 March 2015 now come under the new Contracts for Difference (CfD) regime.

According to Interactive Investor, assets bought by venture capital trusts and enterprise investment schemes during a first wave of solar investment are now available for sale.

The average price of ROCs dipped nine pence to £42.45/ROC ($64.2/ROC) in the Non-Fossil Purchasing Agency’s monthly auction in April, the agency said.

In a year-on-year comparison, the April 2015 auction price was up from £41.55/ROC in April 2014, when 59,748 certificates were sold.

ROCs are issued to eligible producers of renewable energy in the UK.

Electricity suppliers have to meet a percentage of their supply with ROC-accredited power.
