Practicalities of Renewable Energy - House of Lords Report
Submitted: 15 July 2004
The Lords' study addresses the practicalities of meeting the Government’s targets for renewables and some of their wider implications. Among the conclusions are that unless some key problems are addressed within the next two years the targets will not be achieved and the broader strategy on renewables seriously jeopardised. In particular:
  • The current means of subsidising renewable sources must be modified to give longer term stability to the market;
  • Planning processes must be co-ordinated at several levels and various means used to achieve more local acceptance of renewable developments;
  • National electricity transmission and distribution arrangements may need serious attention to allow proper access and management of distributed and intermittent electricity generation;
  • The Government must show that they are taking energy supply seriously both through ministerial commitment and commitment of resources to R&D.
