UnFiT for purpose

UnFiT for Purpose: A Call for Intervention to Support Small-scale Low-carbon Generation Post March 2019 is an insight paper by Pixie Energy that aims to address the issue of securing a route to market for small-scale low-carbon generation, following the announcement by BEIS that the Feed-in Tariff (FiT) scheme will close to new applicants on 31 March 2019.

We recommend a Transitional Offtake Tariff to support continued support of deployment of small generators from April 2019 until new local markets can be shown to work. This could be achieved at no cost to consumers by tying export rates to system values. It advocates a continuing obligation on suppliers to purchase surplus energy from solar sites below 250kW. It also proposes retention of guaranteed market access for community energy schemes at a higher threshold of 500kW given their reliance on certain export payments.
