Renewable Energy (Industrial Report) - UK - December 2014
“Despite the renewable energy market growing rapidly in recent years, investor confidence has started to decline. This is largely due to frequent government policy changes and the lack of a clear, long-term energy policy, making the renewables sector increasingly fragile. Although the deployment of renewable energy is set for sustained growth over the coming years, there are uncertainties regarding the future technology mix, which is exacerbated by potential policy changes following next year’s general election. Nonetheless, the strongest growth potential for renewable energy deployment is expected to be in the offshore wind and solar power sectors.”

Interest in renewable energy in the UK has increased in recent years due to new UK and EU targets for reductions in carbon emissions, the promotion of renewable electricity power generation through commercial incentives such as the Renewable Obligation Certificate scheme (ROCs) and FITs, and the promotion of renewable heat through the Renewable Heat Incentive. Historically, hydroelectric schemes were the largest producers of renewable electricity in the UK, but have now been surpassed by wind power schemes, for which the UK has large potential resources.
