Beis plans T-3 Capacity Market auction, renewables included


The department for business energy and industrial strategy is consulting further on changes to the Capacity Market that would enable wind and solar projects to be included, make changes in the way interconnectors participate, and prepare for a ‘T-3′ auction to be held in early 2020.

The consultation assumes the European Commission will grant State Aid approval for the market after its current re-assessment is complete.

The process for the T-3 auction – pre-qualification, appeals windows and the auction itself – would run alongside the ‘business as usual’ T-4 and T-1 auctions with Beis aiming to run the T-3 first.
