Advanced Forecast CfD Generation

This dataset provides a forecast out to 24 months.

This dataset contains CfD generation forecasts for six Quarterly Obligation Periods. Different levels of sensitivity have been applied on forecasting the figures and are termed as base case, low case, and high case sensitivities.

The base case assumes our best view of Start Dates and Market Reference Prices. The low case sensitivity adopts the same assumptions as for the base case, but with the assumption that all CfDs expected to generate in the forecast period commence CfD generation six months after the Start Date or an alternative later start date assumption of the base case. It also assumes an increase to power market prices over the period covered by the advanced forecast. The high case sensitivity adopts the same assumptions as for the base case, but with the exception that it assumes that all CfDs expected to generate in the forecast period commence CfD generation two months prior to the Start Date or an alternative early start date assumption of the base case. It also assumes a decrease to power market prices over the period covered by the advanced forecast.

The Advanced Forecast CfD generation dataset replaces the previous 15 Month Forecast CfD generation dataset, which is no longer available.

This dataset is updated following the end of each Quarterly Obligation Period.
