EIIs can claim an exemption of up to 85% of the Contracts for Difference (CfD) cost (from 3 November 2017) and the Renewables Obligation (RO) cost (from 1 April 2018).
Feed-in Tariff (FIT) exemptions have also started (from 1 April 2019).
A new Government consultation is proposing to widen eligibility for the CfD, RO and possibly the FIT exemption schemes. The proposed changes potentially lower the qualifying threshold from 20% to as low as 10% energy intensity.
