World Waste to Energy & Resources Summit tackles CfDs

Written by: World Waste to Energy & Resources Summit | Published:

After a two-year allocation hiatus, we recently saw the second Contract for Difference (CfD) allocation round begin. With only less established technologies eligible to compete, and a “maxima” of 150MW applied to all fuelled technologies projects, this new framework has sparked widespread debate regarding the future for gasification and pyrolysis projects.

At London’s upcoming World Waste to Energy & Resources Summit on May 23-24, a carefully crafted panel of experts will explore the impact of the latest allocation round, in addition to analysing the success of projects emerging from the first auction. The effectiveness of alternative subsidy schemes

The line-up, for the session Analysing CfDs and Alternative Funding Incentive as Effective Pathways to Project Delivery, includes:

  • Frank Gordon, senior policy analyst, Renewable Energy Association, UK
  • Neil McDermott, CEO, Low Carbon Contracts Company, UK
  • Peter MacLaren, director, Levenseat, UK
  • Richard Burgess, deputy managing director, Spencer Group, UK
  • Keith Riley, Partner, BH EnergyGap, UK

While the impact of the second allocation round on the future of the industry remains to seen, one thing is for certain. The need to adapt, innovate and embrace new technologies in order to face the challenges ahead has never been greater, and now is the time to get involved.

The World Waste to Energy & Resources summit is taking place in London on May 23-24 at the Park Plaza Victoria Hotel London, 239 Vauxhall Bridge Rd, London SW1V 1EQ
