Contracts for difference subsidy terms unveiled

Contracts for difference subsidy payments will be calculated using a twice-yearly or day-ahead electricity market price. DECC also has the right to change subsidy levels if unforeseen legal changes occur

DECC has revealed how it plans to support large-scale, low-carbon energy projects from 2014/15.
