The Contracts for Difference Regulations 2018
These Regulations amend The Contracts for Difference (Allocation) Regulations 2014 and The Contracts for Difference (Definition of Eligible Generator) Regulations 2014.
Amendment to the Contracts for Difference (Allocation) Regulations 2014
These Regulations insert a new subclass of eligible generating stations for which application for a Contract for Difference (CFD) may be made - a ‘remote island wind CFD unit.’ They also insert additional qualification requirements that a ‘remote island wind CFD unit’ must satisfy in order to qualify for a CFD.
Amendment to the Contracts for Difference (Definition of Eligible Generator) Regulations 2014
These Regulations remove the requirement for a combined heat and power generator to intend to accredit their project under the Combined Heat and Power Quality Assurance Programme (CHQPA).
Although the accreditation requirement has been removed, projects will still need to be accredited under CHPQA through the terms of their Contracts for Difference (CFD) contract.
These Regulations also make minor amendments to the definition of ‘waste.’
