Missed renewable energy targets will cost UK dear, warns study

The UK is set to miss its renewable energy targets by a wide margin – a failure that could result in billions of pounds being added to energy bills as we rely increasingly on imported gas, according to a new study.

Only 3% of the UK's energy currently comes from renewable sources, such as sun and wind, compared with a European average of 12%, despite a series of high-profile government policies aimed at increasing that percentage.

New 16p solar FiT will go ahead from August 1

After weeks of anticipation the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has today published the results of the latest solar feed-in tariff consultation. From August 1 the new rate for 4kW systems will be 16p/kWh, set in line with current installation figures.

With installed prices now more than 50 percent lower than in April 2010 when the FiT was first introduced, the latest tariffs are aimed at providing the same returns as originally set out.

Speaking in the House of Commons this afternoon the Minister of State, Greg Barker announced a range of alterations to the existing feed-in tariff (FiT) scheme. The UK solar industry will now benefit from a less complex degression management model, which includes smaller quarterly degressions linked to market deployment. This differs from the existing system, which offers an automatic degression.

Nick Clegg promises to hold Conservatives to their environmental promises

Nick Clegg has issued a stark warning to the Conservatives that the Liberal Democrats have not forgotten David Cameron’s environmental promises in the run-up to the general election.

Speaking at the Liberal Democrat conference in Brighton, Clegg reiterated that the Lid Dems were focused on building a new economy out of the rubble of the old. The Deputy Prime Minister stated the need for “a strong, balanced economy built on productive investment, not debt-fuelled consumption. An innovative, inventive economy driven by advances in science and research. And yes, a clean, green economy too, powered by the new low-carbon technologies. Britain leading the world.”
