This information is not held by the Department. National Grid is the Delivery Body for the allocation of Contracts for Difference. Regulations limit the information released to the Department during and after the allocation process, for example because it is commercially confidential or where its release could undermine the efficiency of the auction process.

We intend to provide information on those applicants who are successful and sign contracts when the allocation process concludes next year. Information which will be made available includes the technology type, capacity, delivery year and strike price of successful projects.
