CfD Allocation Round 2 - Results that will blow you away - wind turbine in sea

The Contract for Difference (CfD) Round 2 auction delivered a dramatic reduction in costs for offshore wind.

Key points included:

  • Three offshore wind projects were awarded contracts, with two projects clearing at £57.50/MWh (2012 real);
  • In total, the Government announced that 11 projects had successfully been awarded a CfD totalling 3.346GW of renewable capacity; and
  • 149.95MW of ‘fueled technologies’ were awarded, suggesting the ‘maxima’ of 150MW was triggered.

Despite the high volume of capacity procured, just £176 million, or 60% of the allocated budget, was utilised. These results will have a significant impact for UK energy policy and the energy mix going forward.
