Insights: How are CfD projects delivering?

Contracts for Difference (CfD) introduced a new type of framework for developing and delivering low-carbon power projects. Through the first five years of supporting new projects to meet the obligations of their CfD contracts, our Contract Management team have seen how the CfD's milestones, schedules and scope for flexibility have been key to commissioning the new capacity. As we consider what's next for the scheme, the success of these features continues to offer protection for consumers and investors, underpinning the delivery of new low-carbon power.
