The department has confirmed that it is giving careful consideration to the possibility of developing a subsidy-free contract for difference (CfD) for the onshore wind industry.
Speaking in the Commons on Thursday 11 February, energy minister Andrea Leadsom said the industry’s interest in the proposal demonstrated that DECC had been correct in its belief that the technology could “stand on its own two feet”. She added: “We are calling it a market-stabilising CfD and we are listening carefully to industry on how it can be delivered […] It is not something that we would introduce just on the back of a fag packet; it requires careful consultation and consideration.”
