REGOs and Decarbonisation

Though this is not the original intention of the REGO scheme, REGOs have increasingly become seen as a mechanism to provide support to increase the build-out of renewable generation in GB. This report therefore examines the question “has trading in REGOs provided an effective incentive for investment in new renewable electricity generation in GB, and will it in future?”

We have looked at this through the lens of the use of REGOs as part of a business case for a renewable asset. This viewpoint will allow us to examine the question posed effectively.
