Scottish Renewables consultation response: Supply Chain Plan: Addendum to Electricity Market Reform – Proposals for Implementation
Our key points include:
We would encourage DECC to provide greater certainty that the target of assessing plans within 30 days can be achieved;
It is unclear at what stage the developer would be best placed to submit their plan;
We would welcome further clarity on what the consequence would be for a developer who did not follow their proposed supply chain plan (without good reason) and under what circumstances the Secretary of State would request a post-build report;
Overall, while we welcome the recognition of and commitment to encouraging innovation, competition and skills, it is important that the proposed requirement does not introduce unnecessary delay into the EMR application and allocation process.
