Organisations prompt government to Build Back Green
A group of trade associations representing the renewables industry and related sectors, including ECA, have sent a joint open letter to Chancellor Rishi Sunak making the case for renewables to be embedded into the UK Government's stimulus packages to address the economic recession caused by the coronavirus outbreak, as well as the larger issue of climate change.
Co-signed by the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA), the Association for Decentralised Energy (ADE), the REA, Scottish Renewables and the UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association (UKSIF), the letter highlights the value of scaling up the renewables industry to develop a circular economy that meets net zero targets and provides jobs and energy security.
Luke Osborne, energy advisor at engineering services trade body ECA, said, “The Government’s commitment to a green recovery is positive, but it must be powered by a renewables revolution. We urge the Government to lead the way ahead of the COP summit by incentivising and backing clean energy sources. A renewables revolution will create thousands of jobs, boost the economy, and help improve the UK’s energy security.”
