In August 2014 we published our decision to extend the cap and floor regime to near-term electricity interconnectors. The first application window closed in September 2014. Our August 2014 decision explained we would open a second application window for projects which may not have been eligible to apply via the first application window or that may have benefited from delaying their application. We had initially expected the deadline for applications to be September 2015.

We are now confirming that, having considered information presented to us by stakeholders, we have decided that it is appropriate to delay the second application window. We will continue to consider the optimal timing of the second window and we invite developers to continue to engage with us and update us on their respective projects. We anticipate publishing a further update in the autumn of this year.
