star this property answer text <p>We have always been clear that auctions can be used to drive value for money, once the market is sufficiently developed. As set out in the Consultation on Competitive Allocation, published by the Department on 16 January 2014, we consider that market conditions are such that for some, more established, technologies this will be the case from the start of the allocation of Contracts for Difference (CfDs) under the enduring arrangements.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to ensuring that a broad range of developers and projects are able to access the CfD, and is introducing the Offtaker of Last Resort (OLR) to guarantee independent renewable generators a route to market and improve their ability to raise project finance. Ultimately the financing of individual projects is a matter for developers. Projects applying for CfDs will be at different stages of development, including the extent to which they have engaged with and/or agreed terms with financiers. However, the CfD offers a number of important advantages over the Renewables Obligation, including providing developers and their financiers with the certainty of a private-law contract which will be awarded to successful projects years ahead of the point at which some projects can accredit under the Renewables Obligation.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department publishes the number of Green Deal plans at each stage in its monthly Official Statistics release. The latest figures show that there were 2,000 Green Deal plans in the system at the end of April 2014. Of these, 532 were ‘new' (quote accepted), another 473 were ‘pending' (Plan signed) and 995 were ‘live' (all energy efficiency measures installed). These figures are available at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/green-deal-and-energy-company-obligation-eco-monthly-statistics-april-2014" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/green-deal-and-energy-company-obligation-eco-monthly-statistics-april-2014</a>.</p><p> </p><p>It is only possible to calculate the average value of ‘live' Green Deal plans as this is the point, after the measures have been installed, at which the energy supplier has all the information required to bill Green Deal charges. However, this has not yet been calculated by the department and would take in excess of the resource limit for Parliamentary Questions to compile and quality assure from the underlying data.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department launched a consultation on our approach to competitive allocation of Contracts for Difference (CfDs) in January 2014. This included proposals to move to auctioning of CfDs from the first allocation this autumn. We carefully considered the responses to the consultation before confirming our policy position in the Government Response published on 13 May 2014. Competitive allocation will deliver renewable energy at a lower cost for consumers.</p><p> </p><p>In developing our proposals for the move to competitive allocation, my officials have also worked closely with developers and other stakeholders, including representatives of independent renewable energy generators.</p><p> </p><p>In particular, we are introducing the Offtaker of Last Resort (OLR) to support independent renewable generators by guaranteeing a route-to-market and therefore improving their ability to raise project finance.

We are on track to deliver the final policy and introduce enabling regulations ahead of the first allocation of CfDs.
