Call for evidence on fuelled and geothermal technologies in the Contracts for Difference scheme

This call for evidence seeks initial views and evidence on fuelled technologies and geothermal in the Contracts for Difference (CFD) scheme. This will facilitate assessment of whether any further policy proposals are needed. If the Government does decide it is necessary to change the way fuelled or geothermal technologies are treated by the CFD scheme as a result of this call for evidence, then where appropriate, these would be consulted on, and if necessary State Aid approval sought before any such changes were made.

20 December 2016 - onsultation closed.

13 March 2017 - Consultation outlook:

This report provides the Government’s response to the Call for Evidence on Fuelled and Geothermal Technologies in the CFD, relating to geothermal only. It indicates the level of the Administrative Strike Price which the Government has decided to set for geothermal (with or without CHP) for the Second CFD Allocation Round opening in April 2017.

A separate Government response relating to the fuelled technologies will be published in due course.
