Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Biofuels (14 May 2014)

Gregory Barker: The total future subsidy cost of power generation by biomass will depend on future deployment of this technology, which is uncertain, as this will depend on the relative costs of this technology going forward. Given these uncertainties the EMR Delivery Plan, included a number of illustrative deployment scenarios (see following table). However, these scenarios are for illustration and are not...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Biofuels (14 May 2014)

Gregory Barker: The main mechanism of support for biomass1 power generation is the Renewables Obligation (RO). An estimate of support can be made by applying the share of RO certificates (ROCs) redeemed by suppliers, originating from biomass generation, to overall RO expenditure. This is given in the following table for 2008/09 to 2012/13.   RO total expenditure (£ million) Biomass share of ROCs...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Green Deal Scheme (14 May 2014)

Gregory Barker: Green Deal finance loans are one way that households can fund home energy efficiency improvements. The competitiveness of a Green Deal finance loan compared to other financing options will depend on the circumstances of each household. However, external research has shown that a Green Deal finance loan, available at 6.96% (plus administrative charges) for a period of 10 to 25 years, can often...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Renewables Obligation (14 May 2014)

Gregory Barker: Renewable Obligation (RO) expenditure is calculated on a financial year basis. Total expenditure in 2012-13 was £1,991 million. The proportion of this support given to solar in 2012-13 can be calculated by dividing the number of RO certificates (ROCs) redeemed by suppliers originating from solar generation (20,932) by the total number of ROCs redeemed by suppliers (44,773,499). This gives a...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Solar Power (14 May 2014)

Gregory Barker: The Government published the second part of our UK Solar PV Strategy Part 21 on 4 April 2014. We made clear in that document that we are considering the implications of current trends of deployment in solar PV on the financial incentives available in Great Britain under the renewables obligation and small-scale feed-in-tariffs. We will issue a public consultation shortly proposing changes to...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Renewable Energy: Feed-in Tariffs (12 May 2014)

Gregory Barker: As the first degression for wind tariff bands was only introduced on 1 April 2014, it is too early to say what impact it has had on manufacturing and employment in the sub-15kW wind sector. Up to the end of 2013, over 5,150 wind installations had been accredited for FITs, and this pace of deployment has shown no signs of slowing since April 2013. The degression mechanism is very important...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Renewable Energy: Feed-in Tariffs (12 May 2014)

Gregory Barker: The European Commission adopted new guidelines for Energy and Environmental Aid (EEAG) on 9 April. Existing schemes, such as the feed-in tariff scheme (FITs), are not required to be brought into line with these new guidelines for as long as the relevant scheme remains covered by its existing EU state aid approval. It would need to be brought into line only if we were to introduce a change to...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Solar Power (12 May 2014)

Gregory Barker: As set out in the Solar PV Strategy, published in April 2013, solar PV is an important part of the UK’s energy mix. In the EMR delivery plan we estimated a total of between 10 and 12GW of solar photovoltaic across all scales would be installed by 2020. Of this we anticipate that 2.4 to 4GW will be large- scale solar PV installations greater than 5MW.

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Solar Power (12 May 2014)

Gregory Barker: In April 2014 we published the Solar PV Strategy1, which set out the principle that solar PV should be: appropriately sited, give proper weight to environmental considerations such as landscape and visual impact, heritage and local amenity, and provide opportunities for local communities to influence decisions that affect them and gain some form of community benefit. The Solar Trade...

Gregory Barker: The eligibility criteria for solar farms under contracts for difference are set out in the allocation regulations. Any solar farm must meet these criteria in order to be able to apply for a CfD. In April 2014 the Government published the Solar PV Strategy1, which sets out that DECC will continue to work with industry, to promote industry best practice for the development of solar farms. 1...
