For the first time since 2016, solar projects are eligible for support in the upcoming Contracts for Difference (CfD) auction.

With auction round four (AR4) set for the 13 December, solar developers are eying the potential of the £10 million carved out for Pot One technologies.

Ahead of the auction, the Low Carbon Contracts Company (LCCC) and Solar Energy UK are launching a webinar to discuss all things solar CfDs.

The Getting up to speed on CfDs: a discussion on solar power and the coming auction webinar will explore the UK’s solar pipeline as it stands, and what developers will be taking on if they choose to go down the CfD route.

Solar Media’s deputy editor Molly Lempriere will chair the session, which will bring together Solar Energy UK’s head of policy Cam Witten along with LCCC’s head of strategy, stakeholders and business development Gordon Edge and head of scheme management Nick Blair to present key information around solar developments, the ICPs, the Milestone Requirement, capacity delivery obligations and OCPs.

Following this, Solar Energy UK’s CEO Chris Hewett will moderate a Q&A with all panellists eager to further discuss the opportunities and challenges of AR4.


Join Solar Media, LCCC and Solar Energy UK on 28 October at 10am for Getting up to speed on CfDs: a discussion on solar power and the coming auction. To register and for more details, click here.
