Widespread investment in, and deployment of, low carbon generation assets is required to support the UK in delivering its net zero targets and interim carbon budgets. The routes to market and revenue composition of these assets is in frequent flux, with the commencement and cessation of various subsidy support mechanisms, changing policy, rules and regulations, and significant volatility in wholesale markets. Net Zero and the Energy Security Strategy represent a significant opportunity for investors and developers of low carbon generation assets, but there also exists burdensome complexity in a wide range of regulatory and commercial risks faced by developers, operators and investors.
The electricity system needs to completely decarbonise by 2035, signalling massive investment in zero carbon sources of generation in the next decade. Developers and investors need to understand the relative opportunities available in subsidy mechanisms and the viability of alternative routes to market such as merchant assets or Corporate PPAs (CPPAs), as well as the policy and regulatory risks in development.
