Shadow chancellor John McDonnell has strongly rebuked the government for its treatment of the domestic solar industry.
Centrica has said it has been forced to scale back its domestic solar business amidst growing uncertainty surrounding the feed-in tariff.
Subsidy-free solar is viable in the UK just as long as government “gets out of the way”, a panel at this morning’s Solar Finance and Investment Europe event has concluded.
After eight quarters of deployment under the revised feed-in tariff scheme, solar PV continues to deploy at around half the level government expected it to, recent statistics have revealed.
UK households with solar PV look set to pay increased network charges in the future after Ofgem provided an update on its targeted charging review earlier this evening (6 November 2017).
Leading trade bodies from the UK’s renewables sector have united to form the Smart Power Industries Alliance (SPIA) in a bid to support the transition to a smarter, more agile power system.
Ofgem and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) are planning to publish their response to the smart power call for evidence (CFE) in late May or early June, according to the regulator’s Andrew Burgess.
