Overview of panel discussion B2 - Grid-locked: untangling the issues of grid
The ongoing commitment from the UK Government to include onshore wind in annual Contracts for Difference auctions can give the industry confidence, but with global energy price uncertainty and fast-approaching net-zero deadlines, we need rapid deployment.
The onshore wind industry has set an ambitious target of 30GW by 2030, but there are several key issues to creating a system that is fit for purpose and which can deliver onshore wind capacity as quickly as possible. In this session we will look at the conditions required in market reform and financing, as well as addressing the challenges of bringing new projects onto the grid.
In this session we’ll cover:
- Routes to market and the future of the CfD - AR5 and beyond
- Market reform and pricing: the impact of ‘postcode pricing’ on UK renewable energy growth
- The challenge of grid connection and the future our grid infrastructure needs
