Prime Minister’s new emissions target means ramping up renewables

Welcoming the announcement by the Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirming that the UK is setting an emissions reduction target of 78% by 2035.

RenewableUK’s Deputy Chief Executive Melanie Onn has this to say:

“It’s right for the UK to secure its position as a world leader on climate change by stepping up our emissions reduction target in the run-up to the UN summit in Glasgow this year.

“As a next step, to ensure we achieve our ambitions, and to galvanise industry investment, we need to see a specific commitment by Government to decarbonise the electricity sector by 100% by 2035, in line with the Climate Change Committee’s recommendations. This means setting ambitious deployment targets for onshore wind as well as offshore, alongside innovative technologies like floating wind, wave and tidal energy and renewable hydrogen, as every tool in the box has a vital role to play.   

“To ramp up renewable energy development, we also need to see renewable energy projects being consented in a more timely manner, so we’re calling for Ministers to put more financial resources into the expert bodies which rigorously scrutinise new applications. And critically, we need to accelerate work on upgrading the electricity grid to allow us to maximise the benefits of renewable power for consumers”.
