The author reflects on the lack of clarity on how the Great Britain government plans to protect capital that are already invested in clean energy, particularly renewable energy, under the Renewable Obligation (RO) incentive regime. He asserts that RO does not include grandfather clauses which make investments exposed to any changes in rules and parameters that might occur in the future. He also discusses the two steps required for an efficient execution of electricity market reform.
