Energy Act 2004 commits the Government to producing a strategy for the promotion of microgeneration in the UK. As part of the process of developing the strategy we are consulting on an informal basis with key stakeholders in the industry and other interested parties on a wide variety of issues including connection and metering requirements, access to renewable obligation certificates and other regulatory barriers. There will also be a formal public consultation before the final strategy is published.
