Proposed amendment to allow for the modernization of carbon capture and storage projects eligible for a Contract for Difference. The purpose of this consultation will be to gather views on the government`s proposal to amend the Contracts for Difference (Definition of Eligible Generator) Regulations to clarify that carbon capture and storage (CCS) rehabilitation projects involving the connection of an existing power plant to a complete CCS system are eligible for a Contract for Difference (CFD). The proposed amendment would ensure that the existing CCS policy is correctly and explicitly reflected in the CFD legislation. Only an eligible generator can be granted a CfD. The Contracts for Difference (Definition of Eligible Producer) Regulations, 2014 (the „Eligibility Regulations“) define who is a licensed producer. Following the withdrawal of capital support for the CCS competition during the November 2015 expenditure review, the proposals submitted as part of this consultation were not necessary as the draft competitions indicated that they could no longer be continued. When the application window for the CfD request is closed, the determination of the application begins. The delivery office then decides whether or not an application is eligible for the award process. The service entity shall determine the qualification on the basis of the information provided by the applicant and in accordance with the requirements of the Eligibility Regulation, the Allocation Rules and the Allocation Framework. The allocation framework shall contain a list of the checks to be carried out by the notification body when assessing applications.

This consultation ran from November 4, 2015 to November 2, 2015. December 2015, 23:45 To apply for a CfD, applicants must complete the CfD application form, which will be available shortly before the start of the allocation cycle. Failure to comply with any of the qualification criteria and additional information requirements will result in the rejection of the request by the delivery agent. It should be noted that the subsequent review and appeal phases for unqualified applicants do not provide additional evidence that was not presented with the original application. . . .
