The Department of Energy and Climate Change today published an independent study on projected costs and deployment potential for different renewable electricity technologies up to 2030 (June 10th)
The aim of the study – undertaken by Arup - is to provide baseline data to inform a consultation this summer on support levels for a range of renewable electricity technologies for the period 2013-17 under the Renewables Obligation. The study is an independent assessment of scope and potential of technologies, and not a statement of government policy.
Charles Hendry, Minister of State for Energy said:
“It is vital that our support for renewable electricity both encourages investment and represents value for money for consumers.
“This study provides a detailed picture of generation costs and deployment potential for a wide range of technologies to inform our work in this area.”
