Energy secretary Greg Clarke has been warned that the UK is at great risk of missing out on the benefits of low carbon power if it does not address concerns surrounding deployment. Ten member organisations in the UK, including leading renewables groups like the Solar Trade Association, RenewableUK and Regen, have written to the government urging it to address the issue of the small-scale feed-in tariff and its future. The letter warns that concerns over the future of the scheme have caused investment in small-scale renewables to slump, stressing that the country is at risk of losing the inherent benefits of low-carbon projects. As it stands, the feed-in tariff – which supports small-scale wind and other technologies as well as solar PV – is due to close to new applicants on 1 April 2019.
