||<p>The Department estimates that 12.6GW of onshore wind installed capacity will be
deployed by the end of 2018/19 under the Renewables Obligation.</p><p>Fifteen onshore
wind projects have entered into a Contract for Difference (CFD) with the Low Carbon
Contracts Company (LCCC), a Government-owned company that administers the CFD regime.
The latest information published by the LCCC indicated that for thirteen of these
projects, totalling approximately 564MW of capacity, the generator currently expects
the station to start generating before the end of March 2019. The published start
dates are estimates and subject to change. The LCCC publish information about projects
supported by the CFD scheme on their website in a CFD Register - <a href="https://lowcarboncontracts.uk/cfds"
target="_blank">https://lowcarboncontracts.uk/cfds</a></p><p>No additional onshore
wind installed capacity is expected to be deployed as result of the Control for Low
Carbon Levies by March 2019.</p><p>Estimated renewable capacities for onshore wind
and other technologies up to 2024-25 are set out in Table 1.B of the Control for Low
Carbon Levies. It is expected that 13.32GW of onshore wind installed capacity will
be deployed in the UK by 2024-25.</p><p>Discussions with the European Commission regarding
state aid approval to classify remote island wind as a separate technology in group
2 of the CFD are ongoing and we cannot comment on the content of those discussions.</p><p><em><strong></strong></em><em>
