To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what tariff levels, expressed in kilowatt hours, he plans to set for new installations of energy plants providing energy by (a) anaerobic digestion, (b) hydroelectricity, (c) photovoltaic energy, (d) nuclear plants, (e) coal combustion plants, (f) oil combustion plants and (g) wind turbines in the period 2010-13; and if he will make a statement.

From April 2010, Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs) are issued per MWh for accredited installations over 50kW. The level of support granted to hydroelectricity, anaerobic digestion, solar photovoltaic and wind turbines through the Renewables Obligation is as follows, expressed in kilowatt hours (kWh):

Hydroelectricity: 0.001 ROC/kWh

Anaerobic digestion: 0.002 ROCs/kWh

Solar photovoltaic: 0.002 ROCs/kWh

Onshore wind: 0.001 ROC/kWh

Offshore wind: 0.002 ROCs/kWh (from 10 April; 0.0015 ROCs before then).

Feed in tariffs for projects up to 5MW are available from 1 April 2010. As well as a tariff for generation of low carbon electricity (shown in the table), an export tariff of 3p/kWh is available for all technologies under the scheme.

The level of financial support that will be provided to carbon capture and storage (CCS) demonstration projects on commercial-scale coal fired power stations under the CCS Incentive has yet to be set.

There are no tariffs for output from nuclear installations, or oil or coal combustion without CCS.
