The government has tabled an amendment to the Energy Bill on sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). This places a statutory duty to publish a consultation on the options for designing and implementing a revenue certainty scheme for SAF within 6 months of royal assent of the Energy Bill.
This plan outlines how a revenue certainty mechanism for SAF could be delivered by the end of 2026, subject to Parliamentary time.
It has been published in tandem with a written ministerial statement, which commits the government to introduce a revenue certainty mechanism to support SAF production in the UK. The intention is that such a mechanism will be industry funded.
The plan outlines significant milestones and an approximate timeline for each milestone to be delivered to ensure a revenue certainty mechanism by 2026.
