Clarity on longevity of RECs must to promote RPO mechanism
Success of the RPO policy primarily depends on ensuring that obligated entities comply with this mechanism. This can be enforced through stricter compliance regulations and penalties for non-obligating entities. Possibly, if non-compliant entities can be mandated to purchase REC´s corresponding to their obligation for a calculated period of around 6 months - 1 year in the past, this may support clearing out of the current pending REC´s that are lying unredeemed.
