Enabling Investment in Established Low Carbon Electricity Generation Enabling Investment in Established Low Carbon Electricity Generation



Carried out on behalf of ScottishPower Renewables, this report investigates the potential for enabling investment in onshore wind using the existing Contracts for Difference (CfD) mechanism to provide low cost, clean energy to consumers across the UK.

This report argues that a competitive Market Stabilisation CfD would enable decarbonisation in the most affordable way.  As the cheapest, scaleable form of new electricity generation, such a mechanism would reduce exposure to volatile market prices and associated risks.
