Detail of outcome
A follow-up consultation was published in December 2017 ‘Contracts for Difference (CfD): proposed amendments to the scheme’. The proposed policy changes outlined in the follow-up consultation were informed by the responses to this consultation.
The government response to this initial consultation is available from Annex 1 of the final government response.
The Government is seeking views on its position that non-mainland GB onshore wind projects should not be classified as a separate technology nor allowed access to Pot 2 (less established technologies), but should continue to be treated as onshore wind. This consultation is to seek evidence on this issue from respondents.
