The amount that deploys under Contracts for Difference (CfDs) will depend on the strike price at which CfDs are awarded (the auction clearing price), as well as the mix of technologies amongst the successful bidders. The allocation round is currently underway for CfDs and DECC is not in a position to predict the outcome of the CfD auctions.
