Uncertain Future for Renewables?

Many of the UK's advocates of green energy are reacting with dismay to the government's recent policy changes regarding renewable energy.

Indeed, the UK have dropped out of the top ten of a widely respected international league table on renewable energy. This is the first time that the UK has not been in the top ten since the table's inception over a decade ago. We are now ranked 11th behind countries such as Chile, Brazil, India and China to name but a few.

The changes to policy which include ending subsidies for onshore wind farms and large solar farms as well as changes to the Climate Change Levy are seen by many in the industry as a backwards step. 

The government has stated that its withdrawal of subsidies is intended to help cut fuel bills for consumers. It has also stated that it wants to rely more upon shale gas and CCS (carbon capture and storage). However, these forms of energy production are in their infancy and as yet unproven.The worry is that potential investors in renewables may take their money elsewhere - to countries which are more supportive of renewable energy initiatives.
