DECC announced on Friday 8 July that it would seek to procure 52GW in this year’s T-4 capacity market auction, for delivery in 2020-21.
In a letter to National Grid, energy and climate change secretary Amber Rudd said the target took account of the fact that around 5GW of capacity awarded contracts in 2014––Trafford, West Burton, and Cottam––had missed the formal milestones required to retain their agreements. Rudd further confirmed that DECC intended to buy 53.8GW in the early capacity market auction for delivery in 2017-18, and 300MW of turn-down Demand Side Response in the Transitional Arrangements auction.
