The Government supports UK-based innovation in solar power through various innovation schemes, including the Energy Entrepreneurs Fund. The Government is also working with the solar industry to support the development of the UK supply chain. One of the best ways the government has supported the solar industry is overseeing its robust roll-out; 99% of the UK’s solar capacity has been rolled out since 2010.
