Energy: Renewables

Volume 691: debated on Monday 16 April 2007

asked Her Majesty’s Government:

When the United Kingdom’s production of (a) solar power, and (b) all renewable resources, expressed as a proportion of total energy consumption, will reach the same level as that of leading solar and renewables markets in other European Union member states. [HL2479]

We make no forecast of when (a) solar power and (b) all renewables resources, expressed as a proportion of total energy consumption, will reach the same level as that of leading solar and renewables markets in other European Union member states. The renewables obligation is technology neutral and has a target of 20 per cent of UK electricity from renewables by 2020.
