Consultation on the draft Electricity Market Reform Delivery Plan

Closed 25 Sep 2013

Opened 17 Jul 2013


This consultation was carried out by the Department of Energy and Climate Change. In July 2016, the department merged with the Department for Business and Innovation and Skills to form the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

The Government is seeking views on two key policy proposals which, when decided, will be decisions set out in the first Electricity Market Reform (EMR) draft Delivery Plan. The two proposals relate to: (1) the proposed strike prices for the Contracts for Difference for renewable technologies; and (2) and the reliability standard for the Capacity Market.

This consultation is relevant to energy generators, energy suppliers, energy consumers and their representatives, Consumer Focus, network owners and operators, Ofgem, environmental and energy efficiency organisations, energy service companies, installers, the construction sector, finance institutions and other stakeholders with an interest in the energy sector. DECC invites interested parties to submit comments and evidence linked to the questions rasied in the draft Delivery Plan.

Thank you for your feedback on the EMR draft Delivery Plan.
