I should say the same analysis and unknowns apply to the indexation of CfD's for all renewables. Its just that the time periods for the subsidy calculations are 15 to 20 years, instead of 35 to 40 years for third generation nuclear at any cost.
Clawbacks to prevent corporate profiteering on CfD's for renewables have just been ruled out by government as unworkable.
CfD's were created to fund Third Generation Nuclear at any cost, now they will allow unlimited and unregulated profiteering on heavily subsidised renewables as a consequence. The exent to which Nuclear profiteering will be allowed cannot be made clear to the public because that would mean changing the current policy of third generation nuclear at any cost.
The Civil Servants have had four observable goals for the Energy Bill:
1. to hide and cover up the true costs of third generation nuclear and immature renewable technologies.
2. to continue with the policy of hiding and covering up the true costs of nuclear waste management and nuclear decommissioning costs.
3. to hide and cover up the venal self-interest, corruption and incompetence of politicians and civil servants.
4. to create vast numbers of new usless vanity jobs for the boys.
The end result is the Energy Bill volcano with vast magma plumes of complexity including vast and unnecessary new costs and layer upon layer of new red tape (in the form of thousands of pages of government regulation) to cover up and legalise all the new energy generation money making scams.
It is a volcano that hides venal self-interest, incompetence and corruption and it will be erupting and vomiting out unintended consequences for years and years until the whole country is covered by it and suffocated under it.
