Wind industry bids 170 NFFO-4 projects

-

Around 500 bids for renewable energy projects, including 170 wind projects, have come through the first stage of the long and arduous Non-Fossil Fuel Obligation (NFFO) process in the fourth round of contracts in England and Wales. Godfrey Bevan of the Department of Trade and Industry was reporting on progress in the competition for premium priced contracts at the British wind conference at Exeter in September. The 1 GW of wind projects are among the bids competing for around 400-500 MW declared net capacity of contracts. Nearly 900 schemes registered an interest in March at the outset of the fourth round of NFFO. But around 400 did not survive to the technical bid stage. The drop out rate for wind was about two thirds of registrations, said Bevan. More renewables proposals are likely to fall by the wayside before the final round of bidding in January 1997
