The government has confirmed that the introduction of a market stabilising—or “subsidy free”—contract for difference (CfD) for onshore wind has been “discussed” and the government is “considering possible options”.
In a response published on Friday 21 October to the Scottish affairs select committee’s report on the renewable energy sector in Scotland, the government also confirmed it will make an announcement “shortly” including details about strike prices and auction parameters for the next CfD round. The response further reiterated that the government continues to expect a strong renewables pipeline in Scotland, with the majority of onshore wind projects that qualified for the Renewables Obligation early closure grace period expected be in Scotland, as are 10 of the 15 onshore wind projects currently allocated a CfD.
