Uninhibited growth for EnergyPark Peterborough
Green Energy Parks (GEP) responds to DECC's recent consultation launch on Renewable Obligation Certificate (ROC) bandings.
Managing director Chris Williams said today: "We have always had concerns over the reliance on subsidies and the team at GEP have worked hard over the past decade to ensure that the design of EnergyPark Peterborough is resilient to legislative changes or potential alterations in government funding.
"GEP's 80MWe EnergyPark Peterborough has been designed to include a rigorous waste pre-treatment process, to deliver the highest quality of biomass fuel for energy conversion. As a result, the EneryPark is not affected by the re-banding of criteria for Advanced Conversation Technologies and it will continue to qualify for 1.5 ROCs/MWh.
"While EnergyPark Peterborough will not be affected by the proposed cut-backs for gasification, it is likely that a significant number of smaller scale biomass gasification projects will be restricted by these changes.
"This could have worrying implications for the long term expansion of renewables across the UK and may lead to less reliable renewable energy production. Having seen one side of the coin with these proposed new ROCs bandings, many developers will now be seeking proper clarification on feed-in tariffs and the Contract for Difference mechanism, in order to understand the real value of support that they will get."
