ScottishPower response to Contracts for Difference Allocation Round 5 results

 

Keith Anderson, ScottishPower CEO, said:

“This is a multi-billion pound lost opportunity to deliver low-cost energy for consumers and a wake-up call for Government.

“The CfD process is recognised globally as a lynchpin of the UK’s offshore success, but it also needs to flex to keep pace with the world around it. We all want the same thing – to get more secure, low-cost green offshore wind built in our waters. ScottishPower is in the business of building windfarms and our track record is second to none in terms of getting projects over the line when others haven’t been able to. But the economics simply did not stand up this time around.

“We need to get back on track and consider how we unlock the billions of investment in what is still one of the cheapest ways to generate power and meet the UK’s long-term offshore wind ambitions for the future.”
