United Kingdom releases Clean Growth Strategy, plans next CfD auction

UK Clean Growth Strategy Welcomed by ADBA – But Food Waste Collections Needed

The new strategy is claimed to ensure that the whole country can benefit from new technologies, jobs and businesses that are good for consumers, the environment and the economy.

"This government has put clean growth at the heart of its Industrial Strategy to increase productivity, boost people's earning power and ensure Britain continues to lead the world in efforts to tackle climate change", said business and energy secretary Greg Clark.

It highlights the importance of collaborating with industry to achieve these goals - but what do they have to say about the announcement?

Shaun Spiers, Executive Director of Green Alliance, believes going green is crucial for the future of the United Kingdom economy and was happy to finally see decisive action.

In a foreword to the strategy document, Prime Minister Theresa May said clean growth was "not an option, but a duty we owe to the next generation" and emphasised that protecting the environment "also benefits our wider economic prosperity". It is certainly a welcome move in the right direction.

A full copy of the Clean Growth Strategy can be downloaded from the BEIS website.

Gulliver's travelled: HSBC appoints wealth boss as group chief
He will take over the bank following a period of regulatory turmoil for the sector - with HSBC no stranger to the controversy. Flint, who has been with HSBC since 1989, replaces CEO and executive board director Stuart Gulliver , who is retiring as CEO.

Neil Carberry, CBI Managing Director for People and Infrastructure, said working towards decarbonisation by 2030 offers huge opportunities for the United Kingdom economy and is a vital part of an effective industrial strategy. This technology will dominate global power supply in years to come so in the interests of United Kingdom plc, the Government needs to stop putting the United Kingdom solar industry at a competitive disadvantage.

The WWF also commented on the published strategy, with head of energy and climate, Gareth Redmond-King saying: "The strategy's ambition is to be welcomed, however the details fall short of what we need to lead the United Kingdom to a green and prosperous future".

The policies in the plan put the United Kingdom on track to meet the fourth carbon budget, and "reduce significantly" the current shortfall against the fifth carbon budget.

The new Clean Growth Strategy for the first time sets out how the Government will distribute in excess of £2.5 billion worth of investments to support low carbon innovation from 2015 through to 2021 - including up to £505 million from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy's Energy Innovation Programme, which aims to accelerate the commercialization of innovative clean energy technologies and processes.

"This shift offers United Kingdom business and innovators huge potential to shape the future of clean growth", she said at the event. But overall the UK Government admits that it will miss most of its targets.

Antony Skinner, Partner at law firm Ashurst, added there was still a lot of uncertainty, particularly surrounding renewable energy.
