Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Miliband today published the UK Low Carbon Transition and The Renewable Energy Strategy which maps out how the UK’s target of getting 15% of all energy from renewables by 2020.
A key part of this is consultation on the shape and rates of a new ‘clean energy cash-back’ scheme (feed in tariff) to be in place by April next year.
