On Monday 17 April, DESNZ announced that it is seeking evidence and views about reviewing applications for the Contracts for Difference (CfD) scheme. It is seeking views not just on their ability to deliver low-cost renewable energy deployment, but also based on how much a renewable energy project contributes to the wider health of the renewable energy industry. The reforms could see applicants considering overall costs alongside other ‘non price factors’, such as supply chain sustainability, addressing skills gaps, innovation and enabling system and grid flexibility and operability when submitting their bids. Responses are requested by 22 May 2023.
