The Renewable Power Association (RPA), which represents over 70% of the UK’s renewable energy generation capacity, today launches a Renewables Routemap to show the way forward to a sustainable energy future.

The launch comes the same day that Trade and Industry Secretary, Patricia Hewitt, gives her keynote speech on sustainable energy.

RPA Chief Executive Philip Wolfe:

“The Government’s Energy White Paper set out a bold vision for this country’s energy future. But the Government was too timid on targets for renewables. And its policies are too thin and weak to deliver the result. This Routemap shows how the vision can be turned into reality.” Key points from the Renewables Routemap include:

  • A new target for renewable sources to supply 30% of the UK’s electricity within 25 years.
  • “Mending not ending” the Renewables Obligation to maintain investor confidence and ensure the Government’s targets can be delivered.
  • New measures to support well-developed technologies that are close to commercial viability;

“The Routemap sets out practical measures to back up the vision in the Energy White Paper. We will work with the Government to achieve the sustainable energy future that we all want.”
