UK policy undermining renewables sector: SNP


 

The Scottish National Party (SNP) has said the government’s “wavering” political support for renewables could undermine the long-term development of the sector. In a statement on Monday 5 October, the party highlighted a report, published last week by the International Energy Agency, that said “stop-go” political support for renewables was detrimental to establishing a more secure energy system. In response, SNP MP Callum McCaig said: “The UK government’s inexplicable decision to cut support for renewable energy projects is bad news for jobs, bad news for business, and risks derailing important efforts to improve the UK’s energy security and reduce our carbon emissions.”
