Solar Power Portal | Lack of headroom in RESS auction could leave developers ‘jostling’ for capacity

Solar Power Portal featured James Goldsmith’s thoughts on the Renewable Energy Support Scheme (RESS) and how the lack of headroom will make it challenging for developers to be successful.

The analysis showed that If the solar and community preferences take up their full allocations, in a worst-case scenario the rest of the renewables industry would be left with 670GWh available, which equates to around 196MW of installed wind capacity.

The lack of headroom in the category means it could be “extremely challenging to walk away with a contract from the RESS auctions.
