REA describes Budget as a missed opportunity

The Renewable Energy Association (REA) has challenged the next government to create a “policy framework which provides long-term certainty for investors” in renewable energy.

Commenting on yesterday’s Budget, REA chief executive Dr Nina Skorupska said that while its members welcomed the government’s general commitment to renewable energy, it missed an “opportunity to spread this commitment more widely to renewable power generation and renewable heat – both of which would thrive under a more stable regulatory framework which is fairer to smaller suppliers.”

“We challenge the next government to level the playing field for emerging technologies and create a policy framework which provides long-term certainty for investors,” she said.
