Renewable Energy Magazine | 8 GW of wind eligible for CfD AR4

Cornwall Insight’s research on the Contracts for difference (CfD) scheme featured in Renewable Energy Magazine. The research shows that eligible solar pipeline of ~3 GW, up by ~1.8 GW on the same time 12 months ago, with CfD eligible onshore wind capacity at ~5 GW, up by around 1 GW over the same period.

Discussing the research James Brabben Head of Assets and Infrastructure said that with around four months to go until eligibility deadlines, the pipeline could increase further, especially from solar PV with its typically quicker lead times for planning approval.

By December, we could have a record level of new-build renewables looking to bid into the CfD round, creating some interesting decisions for new-build plants.
