On the day that the UK Energy Bill was granted Royal Assent, Maria McCaffery, Chief Executive of Renewable-UK said:

“This has been a long and sometimes arduous process for everyone involved but we recognise that the Energy Bill has now become legislation and the framework for development beyond 2017 is known.

“There are issues still outstanding to be resolved through secondary legislation, and in the face of very challenging strike prices there is still much work to be done between Government and industry to ensure that obstacles are removed and much needed clean, domestic sources of energy can come forward over the next decade.

“Developing our domestic energy sources protects us from fluctuating fossil fuel prices, and could create tens of thousands of highly-skilled jobs over the next decade”.
