Renewables investment

How to build on UK strengths in renewable energy
Renewables investment
Renewables are a UK success story: they're an important source of private investment and jobs, they have a proven track record of delivery and are persistently popular with the public. Their costs have also fallen significantly. 

We are close to the point where renewables will be able to out-compete their polluting rivals, but unclear signals from the government are holding back necessary investment.

Our March 2016 infographic and report show why and how new investment is needed in renewable technologies to reduce the risk of a capacity shortfall and to make it possible to meet the UK's carbon budgets.

Our November 2016 report with our NGO partners highlights that clearer government policy on renewables would mobilise investment in the future.
