Welsh government says UK undermining renewables ambitions


Welsh environment secretary Lesley Griffiths has accused the UK government of continuing to create “uncertainty” in energy policy, undermining the renewables sector. Speaking on Tuesday 6 December, Griffiths said that the government’s decisions had driven the market away from investment in the lowest cost technologies. The comments came as Griffiths set out the Welsh government’s plans for using its devolved powers to incentivise the delivery of more low-carbon energy; this included helping energy-intensive industries to become more efficient, and establishing “ambitious and realistic” targets for renewables, including community energy.
