The development of renewable energy is a tremendous UK success story.

Thanks to our significant investment and support, renewable capacity has quadrupled since 2010. Last year 30% of our electricity generation came from renewable sources.

The Clean Growth Strategy sets out further actions for supporting renewables.

£557 million of annual support is being made available to bring forward new renewable electricity projects, as well as £4.5bn between 2016 and 2021 to support low carbon heating under the Renewable Heat Incentive, and £177m (for renewables) between 2015 and 2021 for innovation projects.
