Abstract: First paragraph: This analysis examines two important judicial reviews concerning financial supports for solar photovoltaic (PV) systems:Solar Century Holdings Limited & Others v Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change(hereafterSolar Century),1andBreyer Group Plc and Others v Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change(hereafterBreyer Group).2The former case concerns large-scale PV systems, and the latter case concerns small-scale systems. The following analysis begins by addressing the background, arguments and reasoning underpinningSolar Century, then proceeds to treat these elements inBreyer Group. A Commentary section then juxtaposes and compares both of the decisions.
