This report, System integration costs for alternative low carbon generation technologies-policy implications, was commissioned from Nera Economic Consulting by the Committee on Climate Change. It provides supporting information for the
Power sector scenarios for the fifth carbon budget report.
It looks at the effects of the changes taking place within the UK electricity industry, specifically: the Electricity Market Reform (EMR) programme, the Contract for Difference (CFD) and Feed-in Tariffs (FIT) schemes, and the Capacity Market (CM). The report draws on a modelling report produced in parallel by Imperial College London for the CCC, which should be read alongside this report.
