Renewable Energy Finance HUB

The reduction in the cost of green energy and the growing demand for these alternative sources has led the Office for Budget Responsibility to forecast that £8.4 billion will be spent on renewable projects in the UK in 2020/21. Britain’s Climate Change Act of 2008 introduced the world’s first long-term national framework to tackle climate change, setting a legally binding target of an 80% reduction in GHG emissions by 2050, against a 1990 baseline. The World Renewable Energy Association's UK Finance HUB has been launched to assist its member businesses with 'going green' and providing helpful guidelines and advise on the best practices for businsses already generating their own energy sustainably.
