CfD Forecast Generation and Avoided GHG

This dataset includes future CfD generation eligible for CfD payments estimated by LCCC until the end of the CfD contract, by financial year (April to March) and expected generation beyond the end of the CfD term, assuming that plants will continue to generate a further 10 years after the end of the CfD contract. Avoided Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions are calculated based on BEIS generation-based long-run marginal electricity emissions factors( https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/valuation-of-energy-use-and-greenhouse-gas-emissions-for-appraisal)

This dataset is updated following the end of each financial year.
