Contracts for difference offshore wind

10 Aug 2016 For the two offshore wind projects awarded CFDs in the first auction, the agreed strike prices were GBP119.89 per MWh and GBP114.39 per  The Contracts for Difference ( CfD) scheme is the government’s main mechanism for supporting low-carbon electricity generation. CfDs incentivise investment in renewable energy by providing developers of projects with high upfront costs and long lifetimes with direct protection from volatile wholesale prices, The recent Contracts for Difference auction has strengthened the push towards offshore wind becoming a major player in the UK energy market. Contracts for Difference were first awarded in 2015 and The framework involves a private contract between developers and the Low Carbon Contracts Company (LCCC), developers receive a fixed fee for the electricity in which they generate for a 15-year period.

The Contracts for Difference ( CfD) scheme is the government’s main mechanism for supporting low-carbon electricity generation. CfDs incentivise investment in renewable energy by providing developers of projects with high upfront costs and long lifetimes with direct protection from volatile wholesale prices, The recent Contracts for Difference auction has strengthened the push towards offshore wind becoming a major player in the UK energy market.

Offshore Wind technology likely to dominate. The Announcement. On 23 rd July 2018 the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) announced that the next auction round for allocation of Contracts for Difference for eligible renewable energy generation would open in May 2019. In addition, BEIS announced that further allocation rounds would be held every two years starting from 2021. The contract for difference (CfD) auctions are the cornerstone of the UK electricity sector’s decarbonization policy and were introduced as part of the Electricity Market Reform in 2013. The CfD auctions appear to have been successful in achieving low bids for low-carbon technologies, especially offshore wind power. Consistent with what many industry pundits had predicted, offshore wind was the biggest winner of Contracts for Difference (CfD) in the second allocation round (AR2), though at strike prices that were significantly lower than many had calculated, and up to 50 per cent lower than those awarded in the first auction held in 2015. Offshore wind has been allocated the lowest Administrative Strike Price (ASP) of all the Pot 2 technologies – effectively a cap on the strike price per MWh which an applicant project may bid in the auction. The UK Government's Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has opened the third Contracts for Difference (CfD) allocation round. The auction has an overall budget of £65 million and is aiming to secure up to 6 GW of electricity generation.

The UK’s Contracts for Difference ( CfD) regime for renewable subsidies was one of the principal pillars of the Electricity Market Reform programme put in place by the 2010-2015 Coalition Government. In one way or another, the CfD regime aimed to provide revenue stability CONTRACTS FOR DIFFERENCE Contracts for Difference: An explanation of the methodology used to set administrative CFD strike prices for the next CFD allocation round November 2016 The Contract for Difference (CFD) for renewable energy is a key mechanism of Electricity Market Reform. The Contracts for Difference scheme has allowed for the price of offshore wind power generation to decrease dramatically since its inception. The first Contracts for Difference auction (2015) saw the price of offshore wind generation valued at £114-120/MWh, compared to the recent auction which represents a 65% price reduction. Under the CfD scheme, technologies such as offshore wind and biomass with combined heat and power (CHP) can bid for contracts in the auctions. Banks Renewables has launched judicial review proceedings against what it says is the government’s discrimination of onshore wind and other renewable energy technologies in favour Consistent with what many industry pundits had predicted, offshore wind was the biggest winner of Contracts for Difference (CfD) in the second allocation round (AR2), though at strike prices that were significantly lower than many had calculated, and up to 50 per cent lower than those awarded in the first auction held in 2015.

Six offshore wind, four remote islands wind and two Advanced Conversion Technology projects secured contracts. Government has secured 5.8GW of new capacity, without spending a penny of the £65m budget. This increases the challenge faced by other low carbon technologies to match the cost reductions achieved by offshore wind. The UK’s offshore wind sector has smashed records for price in the government’s third Contracts for Difference auction round, with prices running as low as £39.65/MWh. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) this morning unveiled the hotly anticipated auction results, confirming that 6GW of new offshore wind capacity will be delivered at prices as low as £39.65/MWh.
