This has lead to a number of Chapters being re-worked, while others remain unaffected. The new chapters can be found here – with updates having been made to the […]
RenewableUK has welcomed the publication of the UK Renewable Energy Roadmap Update by the Department of Energy and Climate Change. The Update states that the UK is on track to meet its first interim target on the way towards generating 15% of all energy (electricity, heat and transport) from renewable sources by 2020. This means […]
The world’s energy crisis has necessitated a radical shift among policy makers and industry participants. Increased awareness surrounding the impacts of climate change has driven an aggressive decarbonising strategy, spearheaded by the Renewable Energy industry. The United Kingdom currently supplies 8.6% of its total electricity from renewable sources, representing a significant increase from 1.5% in […]
Two years have passed since BCC published its last report on the global market for advanced materials and devices used in renewable-energy systems. Since then, the global market for renewable energy has continued to grow and evolve. BCC therefore considers it important to update the earlier report’s findings and conclusions about the size and structure […]
