The latest FiT report (to 31/12/2013) states the following for hydro:
Feed-in Tariff Installation Report 1 January 2013 - 31 December 2013
Hydro FiT commissioned:
Total Installed Capacity: 2,819.50kW
Declared Net Capacity: 2,790.38 kW
Hydro FiT applications:
Total Installed Capacity:2,521.90kW
Declared Net Capacity:2,491.99kW
However, there is now a new web page published by government: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/monthly-mcs-and-roofit-statistics with a spreadsheet which includes accreditations and prelim accreditations, both complete and "pipeline"
This shows a very different set of figures (in total by month, not in detail by site)
It results in 20.348 MW total installed capacity accreditations of which 8.496MW relate to preliminary accreditations.
The decision of the Minister (5% degression for hydro because >12.5MW "deployed") has been made, although it would appear that only 11.85MW has in effect been deployed.
The MHA will be seeking clarification of this discrepancy.
