Feed in Tariff review announced

Yesterday, (17th December), DECC announced the details of its Feed in Tariff Scheme review, confirming that subsidies will be cut by 64%, a significant figure, but not quite as much as the 84% predicted. Under the new tariffs, there will be a 4.8% rate of return for solar, 5.9% for wind, and 9.2% for hydro.


STA lays out jobs losses for solar

Not quite the news we were hoping to hear: the Solar Trade Association (STA) claims that some 20,000 more jobs could be axed in the solar industry, as a result of proposed cuts to government subsidies; a slight improvement on the 27,000 jobs it had previously estimated.

 


Logic Certification is supporting the 'Keep FiTs' campaign

The proposed cuts to the Feed in Tariffs (FiTs) could cause devastation to the renewables arm of building services engineering, reducing business streams for the organisations and sole traders that have invested in delivering this technology, and halting the pace of carbon reducing change across Britain.


Solar PV could be on the up!

The deployment of solar pv technology is top priority for the UK’s new Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, with hopes of “unleashing a new solar revolution” on the cards.

 

Commenting on her new role, Amber Rudd, said: “We have a million people living under roofs with solar panels and that number needs to increase.” This figure relates to the number of households who have installed solar pv under the feed-in-tariff which proved popular under the previous coalition who favoured solar pv deployment on the UK’s rooftops.


Solar roadshow this February

Solar Power UK is hosting a series of events this February designed to help solar businesses get ahead in 2013. Taking place throughout the UK, the half day seminars will cover hot topics such as the new MCS guide, Green Deal and updates from DECC.
