This is a report on the implementation of the Microgeneration Strategy Industry Action Plan – a two-year programme of action to tackle non-financial barriers facing small-scale renewable and low carbon energy technologies. The Microgeneration Government-Industry Contact Group provided oversight and coordination of the implementation of the action plan.
The Government is committed to development of the microgeneration market and wants to see wider take up of renewable and low carbon technologies.
These technologies present an opportunity for consumers to generate their own electricity and heat. Combined with reducing energy through support of the Green Deal, consumers can take steps to not only reduce the environmental impact of heating and powering their homes but also to reduce energy bills.
The Final Report sets out the actions that have been completed to develop the supply chain to ensure we make the most of the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive which is due to start in the Spring 2014. In terms of micro-electricity, we have already seen a transformation, particularly in the solar PV sector, because of the success of the Feed-In Tariffs. Implementation of Microgeneration Strategy Action Plan has been driven by the ‘Microgeneration Government Industry Contact Group’. This work is an example of Government and industry working in partnership to make a real difference to the development of sector.
