Our aim is to ensure increasing amounts of renewable electricity are deployed sustainably across the UK, and to support our members win business in renewable markets in the UK and around the world.
RenewableUK is the UK’s leading renewable energy trade association, specialising in onshore wind, offshore wind, and wave & tidal energy. Formed in 1978, we have a large established corporate membership, ranging from small independent companies to large international corporations and manufacturers.
Our priority is to make sure that it is RenewableUK members at the heart of delivering this UK opportunity. To do this provide them with the highest possible quality services and information, supporting them in any way we can to do more, and better business.
Our work is led by a Senior Management Team and supported by a Board of senior industry figures with a Business Plan setting out our work and priorities.
Collectively our members employ over 250,000 people - from international energy companies to small companies keen to build new markets and ready to disrupt our energy market with new products and services.The UK has some of the best natural resources in the world for these technologies. Renewables have proven their ability to deliver, and alongside gas and nuclear will be central to keeping the lights on and powering our economy. Our role is to maximise this opportunity and create the conditions that will see the renewable sector continue to thrive here. To help us achieve this, we are focusing on;
- Onshore wind - our low cost route to energy security
- Offshore wind - the UK opportunity
- Wave & tidal - Britain’s place in the ocean energy race
- Our future energy system - how red tape is hurting consumers and stifling innovation
- Energy storage – the here and now of building a smart resilient network
