4C Offshore Empowering Intelligence
24 Apr 2023: The Federal Government has announced the tender design. It will offer a 20-year CfD with awards based on price (90 points) and citizen participation (10 points). Bidders will need to meet minimum eligibility criteria e.g. technical and financial criteria. The two-way CfD is capped for state payments but includes a carve out after three years of operation to opt for PPAs for 50% of capacity. There are three forms of acceptable citizen participation (financial, renewable energy communities and communication) and two options for awarding points are proposed. Aim is to enable 2-4% of project CAPEX accessable. Developers will have Nine months to prepare bids; FPS Economy will have three months to examine bids; and commissioning within 48 months (four years) of award. Legislative amendments governing the new CfD are underway. A study will determine the CfD cap for government payments and imposing a maximum number of full-load hours. Royal Decree dictating final tender award criteria, project size, number of lots etc. is expected by 2024.
