On the 15th October Fuel Cells UK submitted its response to the Government’s Renewable Electricity Financial Incentives Consultation, calling for the feed-in tariffs scheme to cover all fuel cells installations up to 5MW, as stated in the Energy Act 2008. Our response followed a meeting with DECC to discuss our position. One of our key recommendations is that feed-in tariffs should be available for all fuel cell electricity only generation up to 5MW, fuel cell CHP up to 5MWe and gas- fired microCHP up to 50kWe from the start of the scheme in April 2010. You can download the full response document here. Fuel Cells UK is also signatory to a microCHP industry statement on the key design principles for feed-in tariffs, which was submitted to Ed Miliband on the 13th October. The full version of the Industry Statement can be downloaded here.
