This week I wrote to UK Government calling on them to reverse a 28% cut to renewable energy funding which could jeopardise the UK’s climate change goals.
Reducing the funding for renewable energy would be a great mistake and shows a worrying lack of urgency about meeting our targets for reducing emissions. There are huge economic opportunities in expanding renewable energy, but it requires continued support. Ministers should commit to reverse this significant cut and renew efforts to encourage the adoption of green energy.
