ADBA’s Policy Team met with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to discuss the end of the Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) and the implementation of the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG), a more market-driven scheme. This initiative will be ready to roll-out on 1 January 2020 and will replace the export tariff within the FIT but has no replacement to the FIT’s generation tariff. The market-based mechanism aims to better address the levelisation cost of electricity produced by different technologies, which we expect to be a challenge for Anaerobic Digestion CHP plants.
