Draft for response to Feed-in Tariff DECC consultation
I am in the process of responding to the “Feed-in Tariffs Scheme – Consultation on Comprehensive Review Phase 2B: tariffs for non-PV technologies and scheme administration issues”.
The comprehensive FiT review follows a strategy review for Microgeneration in 2010/2011 to which I submitted a response. In my opinion an opportunity is being missed at this point to address issues with the FiT scheme as applied to micro hydro schemes. I had hoped that a broader consultation on the FiT scheme would have addressed these issues.
I am therefore planning to submit a response in two parts:
I will attempt to incorporate your suggestions before my final submission (due 26th April 2012). I also encourage you to respond to the consultation yourself online at this DECC web page or using the consultation response template.
A related paper is still outstanding to be published on this DECC webpage: “the draft Impact assessment will be available here shortly”. This may result in further comments.
I am working on the wider proposal and will decide later on how to pursue this.
