star this property answer text <p>The Department does not hold data on capital expenditure for individual offshore wind projects. The Department’s latest projection of capital expenditure for generic offshore wind projects is published in Arup (2016): Review of Renewable Electricity Generation Cost and Technical Assumptions, and can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/arup-2016-review-of-renewable-electricity-generation-cost-and-technical-assumptions" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/arup-2016-review-of-renewable-electricity-generation-cost-and-technical-assumptions</a>.</p><p>The Contracts for Difference (CfD) Second Allocation Round results, which were announced on 11 September 2017, showed one offshore wind project commissioning in 2021/22 cleared at a strike price of £74.75/MWh (2012 prices) and two offshore wind projects commissioning in year 2022/23 cleared at a strike price of £57.50/MWh (2012 prices). Both these prices represent a saving on the administrative strike price set using the data from Arup (2016), indicating that offshore wind costs are falling.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to making sure consumers have secure, affordable and clean energy now and in the future, and the role of interconnection alongside other technologies in meeting this ambition in the short and long term was set out in our Clean Growth Strategy.</p><p> </p><p>Part of this strategy is ensuring that different technologies compete against each other. For example, the Capacity Market is delivering secure supplies of electricity to homes and businesses through technology neutral auctions that result in a mix of reliable capacity. As part of this, interconnectors help deliver energy security while reducing costs for consumers through increased competition. This year’s auction, in which around 2GW of new interconnector capacity cleared, saw the lowest price yet in the history of the capacity market. We assess the outcome of every Capacity Market auction to see what it means for Great Britain’s future energy security.</p> more like this
