star this property answer text <p>The Government recently consulted on a proposal to close the Feed-in Tariffs (FIT) scheme from 1 April 2019. For MCS scale community installations that apply for pre-registration on or before 31 March 2019, we proposed that the tariff rate they would receive would be determined by the date and time the installation’s MCS certificate was issued in accordance with the existing scheme rules. For those installations that commission and apply to their FIT licensee after 31 March 2019, within their 12 month validity period, we proposed that the tariff rate would be that available in the last tariff period before closure (i.e. the tariff available on 1 January 2019). In all situations there would need to be sufficient space in the appropriate quarterly deployment cap in or prior to the tariff period in 2019 to accommodate the installation’s capacity.</p><p> </p><p>The Government will set out its response to the consultation, including confirmed closure arrangements for community schemes, in due course.</p>

This informs their licensing decisions. In the UK, we have been producing oil and gas from offshore fields for more than 50 years and the 31<sup>st</sup> offshore licensing round could offer further opportunities to contribute to the UK’s diverse energy mix as we transition to a low carbon economy.</p><p> </p><p>Oil and gas will continue to play an important role as part of the energy mix for decades to come. Greenhouse gas emissions from all sectors of the UK’s economy are taken into account when assessing our performance against the carbon budgets.</p><p> </p><p>The UK remains committed to the Paris Agreement and we are leading the world in our response to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s special report on global warming of 1.5°C– commissioning the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) for their advice on the implications of the Paris Agreement for the UK’s long-term emissions reduction targets, just one week after its publication.
