In March this year, the Government published a consultation on proposals to amend the Contracts for Difference scheme for future allocation rounds. This included options for changes to the current pot structure to ensure it continues to reflect changes in expected costs across technologies and best supports our ambitions for long term decarbonisation. The consultation closed on 29 May and responses are being analysed. A Government response to this consultation will be published in due course.
