New Renewable Energy Strategy UK - Adam Brown

  1. 1. Renewable Energy in the UK Strategy and Opportunities Adam Brown Sector Champion – Renewable Energy UK Trade and Investment Florida 20 November 2008
  2. 2. UK Renewable Energy Inward Investment Propositions Long term vision Supportive policy framework Financial and Fiscal Support Companies with developed technology, expertise or operating experience Companies developing new technology. Rapidly growing market World leading research capability Supportive collaborative research environment .
  3. 3. Topics <ul><li>Some Recent Developments </li></ul><ul><li>The RO </li></ul><ul><li>Off-Shore Wind </li></ul><ul><li>The UK Renewable Energy Strategy </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Targets and Technology Mixes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Policy Measures Needed </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Inward Investment Opportunities </li></ul>
  4. 4. Recent Developments <ul><li>DECC </li></ul><ul><ul><li>BERR Energy Team + DEFRA CC Team </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Office for Renewable Energy Deployment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Manufacturing Strategy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Focus for “green jobs” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Builds on RETPS </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The Climate Change Bill </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Target 80% CO 2 reduction by 2050 </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Growth in UK Renewable Energy Generation 5X increase in New RE in 10 years
  6. 6. <ul><li>Obligation on electricity suppliers for a growing % of their electricity from renewable energy sources </li></ul><ul><li>Level to rise to up to 20% by 2020 and Obligation runs to 2026-27 </li></ul><ul><li>Accredited Renewables Generators earn Renewable Obligation Certificates for each MWh generated, which can be traded </li></ul><ul><li>Suppliers must have the necessary number of certificates at the year end, or else pay a buy out fee (~£35.76/MWh) </li></ul><ul><li>Buy out fees are recycled to suppliers who have met their obligation, so increasing ROC value </li></ul><ul><li>Generators can secure medium term contracts for supply of power, ROC’s and other benefits </li></ul>Renewables Obligation….
  7. 7. ROC Values Total income = power value +ROC + other benefits = >£100/MWh = >15cents/kWh
  8. 8. Evolution of RO <ul><li>Current technology neutral regime very successful at stimulating low cost technologies (on-shore wind, landfill gas, …..) </li></ul><ul><li>ROC Banding to bring forward broader range of technologies </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple ROC’s from April 2009 </li></ul>Income up to £150/MWh Band Technologies ROC’s Technology ROC’s/MWh Landfill gas 0.25 Sewage gas, Biomass cofiring 0.50 Onshore wind, hydro, Cofiring energy crops, EfW with CHP 1.0 Off shore wind, biomass 1.5 Wave, tidal, Advanced biomass conversion (anaerobic digestion, pyrolysis, gasification), energy crops, biomass chp, PV, geothermal, microgeneration 2.0
  9. 9. On–shore wind <ul><li>2348 MW installed </li></ul><ul><li>300 MW in 2007, 350MW so far in 2008 </li></ul><ul><li>Extensive Pipeline of projects </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1060 MW under construction </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3159 MW consented </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>6890 MW in planning system </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Delays in planning system and grid capacity being addressed </li></ul>
  10. 10. Offshore Wind - UK <ul><li>UK Potential >UK electricity demand! </li></ul><ul><li>Projects “awarded” by Crown Estates in bidding rounds </li></ul>
  11. 11. First Two Rounds 18 sites, 2600 MW 15 sites, 7169 MW
  12. 12. Off Shore Wind - Capacity <ul><li>Project Pipeline </li></ul><ul><ul><li>7 projects, 404 MW in operation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>936 MW under construction (8 projects) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3113 MW consented </li></ul></ul><ul><li>UK world capacity leader </li></ul>Kentish Flats Project 30 3MW Turbines, commissioned 2005
