Renewable Power

  • Renewable Power
    The power sector is currently responsible for 21% of UK emissions.

    The government hopes low-carbon sources of power will account for more than 80% of supplies by 2030, up from around 50% today Offshore wind will compete for up to £557m in confirmed low-carbon support, with onshore wind on Scottish islands also allowed to compete, subject to state aid approval from the European Commission. The next auction will be held in spring 2019.

    The strategy confirms a 10 gigawatt (GW) target for new offshore wind in the 2020s and claims it will consider going even further “if this is cost-effective and deliverable”. With prices falling, the £557m may secure much more capacity than expected.
