The Energy White Paper reaffirms the target for renewable and Combined Heat and Power (CHP), but there is compelling evidence that the New Electricity Trading Arrangements (Neta) contain features that artificially reduce returns obtainable from sustainable energy schemes and threaten to cripple them. Both dependent on the promotion of sustainable generation in the form of renewable energy, in particular wind energy, and the promotion of thermally efficient energy production, notably CHP. With Ofgem's apparent unwillingness to acknowledge that Neta presents small generators with unjustifiable barriers, prospects are bleak for the government in Great Britain in attaining its carbon emissions targets for power generation or of the consumer obtaining value for money for the cost of supporting sustainable energy sources.
