The Science and Technology Committee has published a report on the UK Government’s Clean Growth Strategy in which it called for “strong policy support” for new solar power.
Many of the recommendations made echo those which the Solar Trade Association (STA) has been calling for in recent years, such as reducing business rates for companies generating their own renewable power through rooftop PV.
STA Chief Executive Chris Hewett said; “This report is a welcome addition to the growing body of literature that is calling on the government to bring down barriers to solar and energy storage in the UK. With a legally-binding commitment to reach net zero by 2050, urgent action is needed now. The solar industry is ready to deliver on scale and must be recognised as part of the solution.”
