We are committed to ensuring the UK has secure energy supplies that are reliable, affordable and clean. Our country generates electricity from increasingly low carbon sources and the electricity powering the UK's homes and businesses in 2017 was the greenest ever, with 50% coming from clean sources - up from 19% in 2010.

We are currently considering the responses received to the recent consultation on Feed-In-Tariffs export payments alongside the generation tariff for new applications after 31st March 2019. A Government response will be published in due course.
