A big boost for storage and DSR...

The 2016 Capacity Market auction has gone some way towards realising Secretary of State Greg Clark’s vision to “create the most efficient, most productive electricity system in the world” with 2 GW of capacity requirement in 2020-21 fulfilled by distributed flexible technology.

Diesel generators deterred from either bidding, or bidding aggressively, due to Ofgem’s Embedded Benefits Review and Defra consultation on Air Quality regulations.

The auction also brings to light the competition faced by CCGTs in the current auction structure.

Other implications for existing plants, costs to conumers and uncertainities can be found in the PDF.
