United Kingdom to conduct next clean energy auctions worth GBP557m in 2019

Harrington added: "The government's Clean Growth Strategy will set out how the whole of the United Kingdom can benefit from the global move to a low carbon economy".

The UK Government has announced that the next wave of funding worth £557m to less established renewable energy projects will be offered in 2019.

£20 million - support for clean technology early stage funding.

It aims to support businesses across a range of industries improve their energy productivity by at least 20% by 2030 and build and extend heat networks across the country.

It is hoped this will allow all fuel poor homes to be upgraded to Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) Band C by 2030.

A commitment to phase out the use of unabated coal to produce electricity by 2025. "Clean technology is developing at a rapid pace and costs are falling faster than many predicted - for example, the cost of offshore wind has halved in two years".

Publish a new Resources and Waste Strategy.

"If it's serious about spreading growth across the country, while meeting decarbonisation goals, the government must take this issue seriously and give the North of England real powers to kickstart a local energy revolution".

"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".

Low-carbon innovation is at the heart of the government's approach, climate change and industry minister Claire Perry said in a written statement to parliament.

UK Energy Minister, Richard Harrington said: "The government's Clean Growth Strategy will set out how the whole of the UK can benefit from the global move to a low carbon economy".

"We've shown beyond doubt that renewable energy projects are an effective way to cut our emissions, while creating thousands of good jobs and attracting billions of pounds worth of investment".

Crown Estate director of energy, minerals and infrastructure Huub den Rooijen said the focus on offshore wind was "great news for the sector". "We also welcome the announcement that island wind projects will have the opportunity to compete in future auctions".

The UK government today released its Clean Growth Strategy, a plan to cut emissions, while delivering economic growth, including policies and proposals on transport, power, housing, business and the environment. "However, what's missing is clarity on how the lowest-cost technology, onshore wind, can deliver for United Kingdom consumers".
