Subsidised Renewables: Commercial Optimisation

Public course update – all sessions to be delivered online for the foreseeable future

To ensure we can still deliver our market leading training sessions we have moved all our course delivery online.

Rather than delivering the sessions in a single day, our experts will now provide the content in 3 sessions of around two hours over the course of three consecutive days.

The sessions will be fully interactive, and you can ask our trainers questions via a device microphone, or type questions and comments.

We are highly experienced at delivering remotely as they have formed part of our existing services for many years. You can join the course via any device with access to the internet and a browser.

A streaming service will also be available for delegates that are unable to attend the broadcast time.

You can still book on to any of our courses like normal, and once your booking is complete, you will receive an email link to join 

The majority of the 40GW or so of renewables capacity currently installed in GB is operating under a support scheme, despite subsidy for new developments only being available for select less-established technologies. Those renewables with subsidy will continue to receive support until the later part of the 2020s at the earliest, and the majority well into the 2030s.

This new one-day course explains the operation of the Renewables Obligation (RO), the Feed-in Tariff (FiT), and Contracts for Difference (CfD) schemes and the value available for generators now and in the future. Our experts will also detail how costs are recovered from consumers via their electricity suppliers and give insights on how policy and regulatory changes may impact on these arrangements.

Designed for

  • Traders and operators of subsidised renewables
  • Developers and investors
  • Electricity suppliers
  • Aggregators and offtakers
  • Brokers

Areas of focus

  • RO, FiT and CfD scheme design
  • Subsidised capacity roll-out profile
  • How and when generators receive support revenues
  • Process for collecting costs from suppliers
  • Process for non-payment (mutualisation)
  • Future developments for the existing schemes
