Helping you make sense of the energy and water sectors

This insight paper from Pixie Energy, sister company of Cornwall Insight, recommends a Transitional Offtake Tariff to support continued support of deployment of small generators from April 2019 until new local markets can be shown to work. This could be achieved at no cost to consumers by tying export rates to system values. It advocates a continuing obligation on suppliers to purchase surplus energy from solar sites below 250kW. It also proposes retention of guaranteed market access for community energy schemes at a higher threshold of 500kW given their reliance on certain export payments.

“Large parts of the potential small-scale generation market have no revenue certainty but increased search costs from finding counter-parties. There needs to be a safety net for the smallest players.”
