Detail of outcome
This document sets out the government response to the January consultation including decisions on technology groupings and budget management, and includes an overview of the CfD budget allocation approach. Stakeholder views are requested on additional policy proposals, including the treatment of Biomass conversion and Scottish Islands projects under the enduring regime and the use of minima and maxima within technology groups, in a further consultation.
Following on from this response, DECC has issued a further consultation on allocation of contracts for difference (closing date 10 June 2014). This document seeks stakeholder views on our further policy proposals including treatment of Biomass conversion and Scottish Islands projects under the enduring regime, and the use of minima and maxima within technology groups.
The consultation confirms policy positions previously set out in the Electricity Market Reform (EMR) October consultation document and in the EMR Delivery Plan, published on 19 December 2013, that government is minded to progress to immediate competition for established technologies and intends to undertake further stakeholder engagement on this approach in January 2014.
The consultation will run for four weeks.
