Low Carbon Contracts Company (LCCC) - Contracts for Difference Portal Launch

27 November 2018

We’ve been working with the Low Carbon Contracts Company (LCCC) since August in order to support their corporate site, https://www.lowcarboncontracts.uk/, and provide hosting and wider development services. LCCC use Drupal 7 for their corporate site and since we have onboarded the project, we have moved the site hosting to a scalable AWS solution and have completed a number of security updates across the platform, including a PHP update. Wider work has included  a security review of all wider contributed modules across the site and support for an independent penetration test.


More recently, we have completed the design and build of a separately commissioned Drupal 8 site, called the Contracts for Difference Allocation Round 3 (CfD AR3) portal. This is a collaborative project between the CfD delivery partners and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to provide a central resource for applicants to navigate the 3rd CfD Allocation Round.


The site supports a range of activities including providing:


  • An overview of what the CfD is and how it works

  • An overview of the delivery partners involved in administering each stage of the scheme

  • A step-by-step guide for participants to the CfD framework

  • An overview of the timeline for the allocation round

  • A list of relevant announcements and key publications.


Technically the site is an interesting build for us and includes an engaging interactive timeline, which is delivered via TikiToki. This timeline allows users to scroll through content and see what CfD activities are taking place throughout the next two years.


Ongoing, we are delivering support and maintenance and hosting for both the corporate and CfD sites.
