The consultation asked for views on how best to implement a carbon price floor, including how the Government should determine future market prices of carbon upon which to base carbon price support rates. The consultation used the Government’s long-term carbon price forecast as an illustration.

The Government published their response to the consultation on 30 March 2011, confirming that a market-based approach would be used to determine carbon price support rates as this was the option preferred by respondents.
