UK to conduct next clean energy auctions worth GBP557m in 2019 UK to provide £557m funding for new renewable energy projects
Patty Aguilar | 13 October, 2017, 00:56

Sir John Harman, chairman of the Northern Energy Taskforce and former chair of the Environment Agency, said the strategy, which was being launched in Leeds today, would help the Government meet its commitment to Paris climate agreement.

The Government has also announced up to £577 million for new renewables projects and support for action to roll out a huge 10 gigawatts of offshore wind power in the 2020s.

In a 164-page document crammed with 50 low-carbon policies and plans, the Government has planted the seeds for a new era of green economic growth which replicates the offshore wind model and offers major opportunities for United Kingdom plc.

"Clean Growth is at the heart of the Industrial Strategy, and the United Kingdom government is determined to unlock opportunities across the United Kingdom, while cutting carbon emissions as the world moves to towards a low carbon future". "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. It's as big a change as the move from the age of steam to the age of oil and Britain is showing the way".

"The impact of the Paris agreement and the unstoppable global shift towards low carbon technologies gives the United Kingdom an unparalleled opportunity", added Climate Change and Industry Minister Claire Perry.

Crown Estate director of energy, minerals and infrastructure Huub den Rooijen said the focus on offshore wind was "great news for the sector".

Climate Change and Industry Minister Claire Perry said: "By focusing on clean growth, we can cut the cost of energy, drive economic prosperity, create high value jobs and improve our quality of life".

The news was welcomed by industry groups, especially those representing the "less established" technologies likely to compete for the next auction.

"Offshore Wind Industry Council co-chair Benj Sykes said: "£557m for future CfD auctions provides certainty for the industry and the opportunity to build more innovative, low-priced renewable projects.

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".

"We can not have a low cost, low carbon and secure energy transformation without these technologies", Skorupska added.
