We are authorised by the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000 to perform monitoring inspections to substantiate information provided and determine compliance with the Act and the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Regulations 2001.
In 2015, we carried out a number of monitoring inspections of renewable power stations in addition to a range of checks to ensure validity of large-scale generation certificates. We selected these renewable power stations by applying a risk management approach following the submission of annual electricity generation returns.
All inspected renewable power stations were found to be compliant with the Act and Regulations.
In addition to monitoring inspections, our certificate validation activities also ensure power stations are complying with the Act and Regulations, and constitute another important component of maintaining the integrity of the Renewable Energy Target certificate markets.
