The latest e-ROC Auction of Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs) was completed today, 8 July 2008, with just over 143,000 (including approximately 4000 co-fired ROCs) being purchased.
The average price was £53.27. (The average price in the last auction held in April was £51.39).
Renewable Obligation Certificates are issued under the terms of the Renewables Obligation Order, the Renewables Obligation Order (Scotland) and the Renewables Obligation Order (Northern Ireland), the Government's mechanisms for increasing the proportion of electricity produced from renewable sources.
NFPAS Ltd, a subsidiary of NFPA Ltd, runs the e-ROC auctions in its capacity as agent for a number of organisations who wish to sell ROCs. The next e-ROC auction is due to be held 9 October 2008.
