Following Claire Perry’s announcement of the budget for the third CfD allocation round, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has published the Supply Chain Plan Guidance.
This Guidance sets out details of how projects of 300MW generating capacity or more can apply for a supply chain certificate, certifying that they have an approved Supply Chain Plan for their project and proving their eligibility to bid in to the next CfD allocation round.
There have been minor changes to the guidance since it was last published, mainly to reflect the requirement for developers to submit an Interim Post Build Report or Post Build Report and to provide more detail on the Supply Chain Plan Monitoring Process.
BEIS will publish information on the dates of the Supply Chain Plan Application Window in due course. They will endeavour to assess the plans within 30 working days, although borderline cases may take longer.
For details, and to download the documents, please see BEIS homepage.
