Proposed Network Charging Reforms Could Set Back Subsidy-Free Renewables by up to 5 years. A new public report released today by Aurora Energy Research suggests that regulatory changes proposed under Ofgem’s Targeted Charging review could have significant effects on the GB power market, altering the economics of all forms of generation. The report will be discussed at a webinar on the 22nd May.

The government could be forced to release more subsidies for onshore wind and solar for years to come if Ofgem’s plans to overhaul grid charges go ahead. That’s according to a worrying new study released today by Aurora Energy Research, which has analysed the impacts of Ofgem’s proposed changes under the Targeted Charging Review, and concluded they will favour low-efficiency gas generation at the expense of renewables. The Aurora paper, which at times directly contradicts the findings from Ofgem’s own impact assessment, suggests the deployment of subsidy-free renewables schemes could be severely stymied by the changes. The rollout of smart batteries and demand response schemes will also be delayed, it contends.
