About Low Carbon Contracts Company
The Low Carbon Contracts Company (LCCC) exists to help decarbonise the generation of electricity and make it more affordable for the future. Our work is central to the delivery of the Government’s objective to achieve Net Zero target by 2050.
LCCC’s main responsibility, amongst many, is managing the Contracts for Difference (CfDs) scheme which are agreements LCCC has made with renewable generators. These agreements are private law contracts to provide investors with confidence when investing in low carbon technology. CfDs are also designed to help and manage price increases for consumers, when electricity prices are high. See here for more information on how CfDs work: LCCC CfD Video on Vimeo.
LCCC’s other responsibilities include management of money flows across energy suppliers to fund the CfD portfolio, settlement of the capacity market and develop new schemes. Find out more about all that we do by visiting our main page.
