The winners of the third Contracts for Difference (CfD) Allocation Round were determined by a competitive auction. The auction is run independently by the Delivery Body, National Grid ESO to bring forward the most cost-effective projects in each delivery year. The auction results are then independently audited by Deloitte to ensure all calculations have complied with the relevant sections of the CfD Allocation Framework. BEIS has no visibility of the bid prices of projects and so cannot comment on the reasons for unsuccessful projects.
