Going, going, gone - how do green energy auctions work?


Posted by on

Further to recent announcements by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), that competitive green energy auctions have led to contracts being offered to 27 renewable electricity projects, I considers the pros and cons of green energy and contracts for difference (CfD) auctions, and the lesson learnt.

Within the article, I also look at:

  • What are green energy auctions/CfD auctions and how do they work?
  • What are the pros and cons of competitive green energy auctions?
  • Which projects and organisations have been offered contracts? Have certain technologies been favoured?
  • What lessons can be learned from this first auction and will we see more of these?
  • What should lawyers advising in this area take note of and what should they advise their clients?

The full article 'Going going gone' was first published on Lexis®PSL Environment on 12 March 2015.
