Implications of the rising cost of capital for the fifth round of the Contract for Difference scheme

Soaring inflation and interest rates, combined with supply chain issues and labour shortages, have pushed up the cost of capital and increased the costs needed to finance renewable projects. With the latest round of the Contract for Difference (CfD) scheme set to open to applications this month many in the industry are concerned that the administrative strike price is set too low for projects to be financially viable given the rising capital costs.

This paper discusses the impacts of a high cost of capital on the success of both prospective and previously commissioned projects under the CfD scheme.

Co-location, co-location, co-location

As the UK transitions to net zero, the energy generation mix will become increasingly dominated by intermittent renewable generators, thus promoting a need for greater flexibility within the energy system. Setting up a new site, especially for storage assets, is currently a long and often costly process.

Whilst this report focuses primarily on the co-location of multiple generation or storage assets, the co-location of generation with demand is also discussed in the context of electric vehicle charging infrastructure and low-carbon hydrogen production.
