Energy UK responds to the Government's announcement on CfD auctions

Responding to the Government’s announcement on Contracts for Difference (CfD) auctions, Energy UK’s chief executive Lawrence Slade said: 

“We welcome this announcement giving the clarity on future CfD auctions which the industry has been calling for. 

“The competitive CfD process has played a major part in driving down the cost of renewables such as offshore wind - but if we are to continue the transition to low carbon energy at the least cost to consumers then we must ensure that the cheapest technologies such as onshore and solar are no longer excluded.”
