The EMR Delivery Plan 2013 provides details on the approach to Remote Island onshore wind and includes administrative strike prices for this technology for 2017/18 and 2018/19.

The publication can be found at:

The State Aid approval for the CFD for Renewables scheme did not include Remote Island Wind. The UK Government continues to work with the European Commission to secure State aid approval for this technology.

We intend to publish strike prices in advance of the next allocation round. Subject to State Aid approval this will include strike prices for Remote Island onshore wind.
