Government's clean growth strategy details plans to meet 2050 emissions target

Government's clean growth strategy details plans to meet 2050 emissions target

On Oct. 12, the United Kingdom government released its Clean Growth Strategy, which aims to cut carbon emissions while driving economic growth. "For the first time in a generation, the British government is leading the way on taking decisions on new nuclear, rolling out smart meters and investing in low carbon innovation". The world is moving from being powered by polluting fossil fuels to clean energy. It includes increased public spending, research and innovation and covers programs delivering low carbon energy, transport, agriculture and waste.

The UK government stated that it will publish next week, the Clean Growth Strategy, which will build on this success, while ensuring that the country moves towards becoming a low carbon economy.

"Ministers are seizing the global opportunity to lead on low-carbon economic growth".

Scottish Secretary David Mundell said: "This UK government investment is vital in realising the potential of less established renewable technologies, as well as providing Scottish jobs in the projects supported".




"This announcement secures cheap, home-grown, clean energy for the UK".

On day prior to the release of the Clean Growth Strategy, the BEIS confirmed that up to £557 million will be available to support less established renewable electricity projects during the next CfD auction, now planned for the spring of 2019.

RenewableUK, which speaks for the wind and marine renewables industries, welcomed the strategy and the commitment to the development of a Sector Deal for offshore wind, but said that "what's missing is clarity on how the lowest-cost technology, onshore wind, can deliver for United Kingdom consumers".

The offshore wind industry has helped create thousands of highly skilled jobs at factories in Hull and the Isle of Wight, and a burgeoning local supply chain across the country. "Onshore wind is the cheapest form of new power generation, and it would be exciting to see what projects in the right places could deliver for United Kingdom consumers".
