United Kingdom to provide £557m funding for new renewable energy projects

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 publication of the Clean Growth Strategy today is a welcome sign that the government is starting to think about how we can make the deep emissions cuts that will be necessary to meet the Fourth and Fifth Carbon Budgets over the next 15 years".

United Kingdom climate change and industry minister Claire Perry said: "The impact of the Paris agreement and the unstoppable global shift towards low carbon technologies gives the United Kingdom an unparalleled opportunity".

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.

It includes a commitment to develop a resources and waste strategy "to make the United Kingdom a world leader in terms of competitiveness, resource productivity and resource efficiency". The Government has given a clear message on electric vehicles and green finance.

Manufacturers also showed support for the proposals outlined in the Clean Growth Strategy.

Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) Upgraded to Buy by Zacks Investment Research
They now have a $235.00 price target on the Internet television network's stock, up from their previous price target of $200.00. Netflix stock breached $200 only briefly as the markets opened this morning, then dropped slightly below the tide-mark again.

Bevan Jones, managing director of Sustainable Homes, said: "We also need to reduce the emissions created by heating our homes and businesses, which account for nearly a third of United Kingdom emissions".

"We welcome the government's ambition to divert all food waste from landfill by 2030 and to support local authorities in rolling out separate food waste collections".

"In addition, the suggestion that materials should be managed in relation to their environmental impact opens the door to smarter targets in the future".

Under the government's Clean Growth strategy and roadmap to 2050, the food sector aims to deliver a 55% reduction in emissions by 2025, as well as a longer-term ambition to cut Carbon dioxide by 80% by 2050. Morton added that following the strategy's targets, tangible support must be provided for mandatory separate food waste collections in England and the "urgent tabling of legislation on the Renewable Heat Incentive to renew support for biomethane-to-grid".

You can find the full Clean Growth Strategy in PDF form on the BEIS website.
