Renewable Energy: Feed-in Tariffs

Question for Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

UIN HL12488, tabled on 20 December 2018

To ask Her Majesty's Government what estimate they have made of the net saving to energy companies as a result of the decision to end feed-in tariffs; and why they decided to change their policy.

We announced on 18 December 2018 our decision to close the export tariff alongside the generation tariff because we do not believe that the current Feed-in Tariffs flat rate aligns with the Government’s vision for fairer, cost reflective pricing.

The potential effects of the export tariff closure is set out in the Impact Assessment that accompanied the Feed-in Tariffs (FIT) closure Government response.
