The UK solar industry has been made to wait on future government action after the long-awaited Clean Growth Strategy deferred relevant decisions for the technology until later this year.
This Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) this morning released its 165-page Clean Growth Strategy, designed to indicate to the green economy specifically how it intends the country to meet its binding fourth and fifth carbon budgets.
But while other renewables, specifically offshore wind, received specific policy support, solar has been made to wait until decisions that the government has teased will be made later this year.
Mentions to solar PV throughout the document are almost explicitly linked to cost reductions the technology has enjoyed – achieved through the course of subsidy support – in both the UK and abroad.
