One of our critical roles is the management of the Supplier Obligation. Our Supplier Obligation and Forecasting Team set the Levy rate that suppliers are required to pay to fund CFD payments. In addition, to enhance the transparency of the Supplier Obligation Levy and projected CFD payments to CFD generators, we developed the Transparency Tool. It was designed to help our stakeholders understand how we arrive at our forecasts for the Supplier Obligation Levy. 

The new feature allows you to compare the cumulative projected CFD payments with the actual CFD payments made to generators over the current quarterly obligation period. It also provides the total forecasted quarterly reconciliation payments to suppliers and the cumulative levy payments from suppliers.

The Transparency Tool now shows the volume of payments being made to generators for the active period as well as the revenue received under the Supplier Obligation. This balance of payments and receipts offers suppliers an insight into what to expect from the corresponding reconciliation period. It also provides assurance to CFD generators that there are sufficient funds to pay them.

Additionally, consumers benefit from an overview of the cost of the CFD scheme and keeps them engaged with progress of CFD projects.

To access the tool and explore the new features please click here.

If you have any questions about this new function please contact info@lowcarboncontracts.uk.
