Energy UK responds to the results for the 4th round of the Contracts for Difference scheme

Responding to today's Government announcement on the results of the latest Contracts for Difference auction, Energy UK's Deputy Director of Policy, Adam Berman said: 

“It’s great news to see these contracts awarded to expand the supply of clean, domestic electricity generation while continuing to drive down the cost for customers.  

“With customer bills at record levels, and an urgent need to improve our own energy security, we need to move fast to meet the Government’s ambitious targets and reduce our dependence on volatile international gas prices.

“Enabling the rapid expansion required also means tackling existing barriers in the planning system and beyond so we can deliver the cheap, renewable projects that will bring down household bills without delay.”
