Description: The Electricity Market Reform White Paper set out the Government’s commitment “to work actively with relevant parties to enable early investment decisions to progress to timetable wherever possible, including those required ahead of implementation of the Feed-in Tariff with Contracts for Difference (FiT CfD)”. The first developer to seek assurance through the FID Enabling project is New Nuclear Build Generation (NNBG), led by EDF, to build a new nuclear plant at Hinkley Point C. By providing an appropriate form of comfort in advance of the implementation of EMR reforms, we are likely to encourage final investment decisions to come forward that would otherwise have been delayed until all necessary legislation had been enacted and new institutional arrangements put in place; or possibly cancelled altogether. This supports the Government’s decarbonisation and security of supply objectives as well as stimulating investment which creates jobs and growth.
