Feed-in Tariff Pre-accreditation Consultation

In late July, DECC published a consultation proposing removal of the pre-accreditation Feed in Tariff (FiT) mechanism that helps groups guarantee a return on investment for a renewable energy project.

 You can read more on the implications and meanings of this on the Energy Saving Trust's blog.

Local Energy Scotland believes that this change could have disproportionate effects on the community energy sector, and responded to the consultation to request that pre-accreditation is not removed for community projects. You can see our response here.
