The UK government is seeking views on proposed regulations that will cover the process by which the Energy Minister can direct the CfD Counterparty to offer a CfD.
Electricity Market Reform (EMR) will create a new mechanism to provide long-term revenue stabilisation to incentivise investment in low-carbon generation – Contracts for Difference (CfDs). CfDs will help to ensure that low carbon and reliable electricity generation is an attractive investment opportunity.
In previous consultations the government has said that the Secretary of State will retain the power to direct the CfD Counterparty Body to enter into bespoke CfDs outside the generic CfD allocation process.
This consultation is to provide clarity to stakeholders on the Government’s intention to retain this power and to seek stakeholder views on the regulations that will govern the way it is exercised.
