Government dismantles UK Renewables Industry

“Last Friday, 1,000 people in the solar power industry were issued redundancy notices. Today the Trades Union Congress says that 27,000 more jobs in the renewables sector are at risk. At a time when the United Kingdom’s economy is far from recovered, the Tory government’s cuts to financial support to renewables – the one industry that bucked the last recession – is hitting both jobs, investment plans, future energy bills and our climate.”


SERA’s Andrew Pakes and Melanie Smallman write in this week’s Progress Online about the Government’s failure on renewables.
