Consultation on a review of the Feed-in Tariffs scheme

Overview
This consultation proposes a set of measures to control costs under the Feed-in Tariff, including revised tariffs based on updated technology cost data, a more stringent degression mechanism and deployment caps leading to the phased closure of the scheme in 2018-19.

It proposes that if such measures cannot put the scheme on an affordable and sustainable footing then there should be an end to generation tariffs for new applicants as soon as legislatively possible, which we would expect to be January 2016.

It also proposes other measures to ensure the scheme is more closely aligned with other DECC policy.
