“A low-cost, net zero consistent system is likely to be composed predominantly of wind and solar” – Energy White Paper 2020
The government’s call for evidence on achieving a high renewables, net zero electricity system is a key opportunity to shape the future of our electricity system and markets to incentivise the level of investment required in wind, solar and flexibility in the coming decade.
This event brought together BEIS and leading developers and investors to debate the key questions in the call for evidence for investors in clean energy. Can non-CfD backed projects obtain revenue from wholesale and other markets, and secure investment? What will be the effects of increased low-carbon deployment on renewable capture prices? Should the government be sending clearer signals about the location of renewable energy projects or pairing them with flexibility assets?
