This Register is published in accordance with the Contracts for Difference (Allocation) (Amendment) Regulations 2015 which introduced the requirement for Low Carbon Contracts Company Ltd, as the CFD counterparty, to establish and maintain a register of each excluded site to which a temporary site exclusion applies. The Register is required to contain:-
• the grid reference co-ordinates and such other information, including a plan to a suitable scale, which enables each such site to be readily identified;
• the exclusion period applicable to each such site;
• in the case of an entity who does not sign a CFD offered to it (a “non-signature case”), the name of the entity. In the case of a CFD which is terminated prior to 13 months after the date on which a CFD notification was given in relation to it and where the reason for the termination was that the generator failed to achieve the required stages for delivery of the generating station (a “non-delivery case”), the name of the generator who was a party to the CFD.
Low Carbon Contracts Company is delighted to announce that a further three Contracts for Difference (CFD) projects have passed their first milestone.
