Support of Energy Flows

A.14 Renewable electricity generation, including that from biomass (and the electricity component from CHP) is eligible for Renewables Obligation Certificates (ROCs) and can receive Levy Exemption Certificates (LECs) in respect of the Climate Change Levy (paragraphs 3.17 - 3.20). ROCs and LECs are also available in respect of the biomass input when it is co-fired in conventional power stations, in an effort to establish biomass supply chains. This support is planned to be phased out by 2016.
