To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, pursuant to answer of 13 December to Question 118103, whether Tidal Range is classified as a less established technology that is eligible to participate in auctions for additional contracts for difference under the Control for Low Carbon Levies announced in Autumn Budget 2017.

Tidal range has not been eligible to participate in Contract for Difference auctions due to its particular characteristics, including: lack of cost data available and the site specific nature of these technologies. The list of technologies that were eligible to participate in the most recent auction for less established technologies was set out in the answer I gave to Question 118103; tidal range did not fall within that list.
