Open consultation: Enabling a high renewable, net zero electricity system: call for evidence

Extension to consultation end date

In the light of COVID-19, we have extended the consultation period to 8 March 2021 to give people more time to respond.

Achieving our ambitious climate targets will require significant levels of renewable deployment. Making sure we have the right policy framework to support this deployment will be crucial to delivering net zero while minimising costs for consumers.

The government is seeking views on how the industry is approaching the financing and deployment of renewable technologies, and how this may change in the future.

Responses will be used to explore options to evolve the current Contracts for Difference (CfD) mechanism for future allocation rounds.

See the BEIS consultation privacy notice.

Please do not send responses by post to the department at the moment as we may not be able to access them.
