Energy Act 2013

Section 12: CFD notifications

105.This sets out how the System Operator is to notify the CFD counterparty of an allocation decision. Subsection (1) states that such a notification must specify the eligible generator and “such other information as may be required by the CFD counterparty for the purpose of making an offer under section 14”. Subsection (2) prevents a notification from being given if regulations made under section 23 (regarding maximum costs and targets) prevent it. Subsection (3) allows for regulations to make further provision about the circumstances in which a notification may or must be given, the kinds of information that must be specified in a notification, and appeals against decisions not to give a notification.

106.Subsections (4), (5) and (6) make provision for the involvement of the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment in the application of this section in Northern Ireland.
