ABSTRACT
The article reports on the changes to Northern Ireland's Renewables Obligation regime to boost the amount of electricity generated from green sources announced by Energy Minister Angela Smith. The changes include the expansion of the scope for the eligibility of biomass and mixed wastes as well as the simplification of some of the administrative and technical procedures. In 2006, electricity suppliers in the region are required to meet 2.6% of electricity sold from renewable sources. According to Smith, applications for windfarms had increased by 60% in 2005.
