Changes to Feed in Tariff statistical publications

As deployment of solar PV under the FIT scheme has now stabilised the need for weekly statistics has reduced, DECC will no longer be producing weekly solar PV statistics from April 2014. The last weekly publication will be on Wednesday 2nd April 2014. This will allow DECC to develop new data series that have been requested, such as generation data. Small scale PV deployment data will continue to be made available via the monthly publication.

DECC will also be changing the data source behind monthly Feed-in tariff statistical publications. The monthly statistics based on Central FiT Register (CFR) data will move to an annual publication cycle and will be replaced by a monthly table showing deployment under the FIT scheme using data from the MCS and ROO-FIT databases. The last monthly CFR publication will be on Wednesday 23rd April 2014.

The monthly degression statistics will remain unchanged (table titled ‘Monthly MCS and ROOFIT Statistics’) and the quarterly regional tables based on CFR data will remain unchanged.

Benefits to users

Whilst the CFR data contains detailed information on the tariff bands, data are less timely that that extracted from the MCS and ROO-FIT databases (confirmation onto the CFR is the final stage in the FIT application process and can be several weeks/months after a scheme is commissioned). Moving the data source behind the monthly publication to MCS and ROOFIT means that users will have more up-to-date information on current deployment trends. It also means that the figures contained in this report will match those published in the renewables chapter of Energy Trends.

To ensure users can monitor changes over time the new table will back-dated to April 2010.

Reducing the frequency of our outputs will enable DECC to take forward more detailed analysis and evaluation of the FIT scheme, for example analysis of generation data/load factors and more local area analysis.

DECC will shortly be carrying out a review of some of its statistical outputs and users will be invited to comment on these proposals. No changes are planned for DUKES and Energy Trends.
