On 24 May 2013 we published an open letter launching a joint review of Interest During Construction (IDC) for offshore transmission and Project NEMO - the proposed GB-Belgium interconnector. 

On 18 October 2013 we published a consultation on our minded-to positions, building on responses to the open letter and discussions from two workshops. The October consultation outlined the proposed methodology for calculating IDC and the proposed applications to each of the regimes. We have now considered the seven responses received and this letter contains the decision on the approach to IDC for offshore transmission. The decision on IDC for Project NEMO will be published separately in spring 2014.
