star this property answer text <p>Ofgem’s Targeted Charging Review is seeking to ensure all parties connected to the electricity network make a fair contribution to the fixed network costs. As was outlined in the ‘After the Trilemma’ speech of 15 November 2018, it is important that we develop an energy system that discourages free riding and ensures a fair distribution of costs.</p><p> </p><p>Network charging is a matter for Ofgem as the independent regulator, and decisions on its Targeted Charging Review are for it to make. However, Government is working to understand the policy implications of Ofgem’s review proposals across a broad range of interests, including renewable energy. Ofgem’s published analysis shows there is a risk that the proposals could affect the investment decisions of some renewable energy projects, and this view is reflected in stakeholder feedback.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Office for Budget Responsibility published estimates of the costs of renewable generation at time of the Budget. Please see table 2.7 of the Supporting document entitled ‘<a href="https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fobr.uk%2Fefo%2Feconomic-fiscal-outlook-october-2018%2F&amp;data=02%7C01%7C%7C6cf9e21adf4044e6d8d908d676390573%7Ccbac700502c143ebb497e6492d1b2dd8%7C0%7C0%7C636826384603279206&amp;sdata=BxkOgTna6XrjbjhQZ9VqwC9%2FBOTffTW1jWPp4RB04sQ%3D&amp;reserved=0" target="_blank">October 2018 Economic and fiscal outlook – supplementary fiscal tables: receipts and other</a>’.</p><p> </p><p>Eligible energy intensive businesses in the UK receive relief from up to 85% of the indirect costs of support for renewable electricity deployment through the Contracts for Difference, Renewables Obligation and small-scale Feed-in Tariff schemes. State aid rules set out that any additional relief above 85% must be limited to an amount that is determined by the business’s Gross Value Added (GVA). A decision to provide additional relief would therefore lead to companies producing the same product receiving different percentage levels of relief depending on their GVA. The Coalition Government consulted on providing additional relief from the indirect costs of renewable electricity as allowed under the state aid rules, but concluded that to do so could distort competition in the UK market. The Government keeps this assessment under review.</p><p> </p><p>Relief from renewable electricity costs is part of a wider package of measures to reduce the cumulative impact of energy and climate change policies on industrial electricity prices for key energy intensive industries. This includes a package of compensation for these industries worth over £850 million since 2013, of which more than £270 million has been provided to the steel sector.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Part of the purpose of the feed-in tariff (FIT) review consultation was to gather views on the broader economic impact of the proposed changes. We also sought views on whether the scheme should be focussed towards specific groups or sectors which might, for example, include households or communities. We had a strong response from community energy groups via the consultation and workshops.</p><p>The actual impact on the community sector will depend on the options taken forward after all responses to the consultation have been considered. We are currently analysing feedback submitted during the consultation and intend to publish a Government response as soon as possible.</p><p>The purpose of the tax-advantaged venture capital schemes is to provide funding to smaller higher-risk companies that would otherwise struggle to access finance to develop and grow. To ensure that the schemes are well targeted and deliver value for money, the government announced at the Autumn Statement the exclusion of all remaining energy generation activities from the schemes. This follows the exclusion of certain types of energy generation in 2012, 2014 and 2015, including most recently the announcement that the provision of reserve energy generating capacity and the generation of renewable energy benefiting from other government support by community energy organisations would be excluded from the schemes with effect from 30<sup>th</sup> November 2015, as well as from Social Investment Tax Relief when that scheme is expanded. These changes help to ensure that higher risk investments are not crowded out by lower risk investments.</p><br /><p>We will continue to work with the community energy sector over the coming months to develop a joint approach that addresses the priorities of the sector and satisfies our overarching objective of cost-effective emissions reductions.</p><br />

star this property answer text <p>Renewable technologies now form a significant part of the UK’s energy mix, and the recent Clean Growth Strategy sets out policies to continue the expansion of the low carbon electricity sector. Coal to biomass conversions are a transitional technology in the decarbonisation of electricity, with all support under the renewables obligation and contracts for difference (CfD) schemes ending in 2027. We are improving the route to market for renewable technologies such as offshore wind by making up to £557m available for further CfD auctions, and working with industry to develop an ambitious Sector Deal for offshore wind which could result in 10 gigawatts of new capacity. No decisions have been made on further CfD auctions for the Pot 1 technologies.</p> more like this
