Contracts for Difference auctions have successfully used competition to procure 30GW of new renewable capacity across all technologies, including around 20GW of offshore wind, since their introduction, while driving costs down for consumers. In any round, the volume of capacity that is successful for each technology, including offshore wind, depends on a range of factors including the volume of eligible applications, and the prices that applicants bid at. We cannot pre-judge the outcome of allocation round six.
