RenewableUK’s Deputy Chief Executive Melanie Onn said:
“The overriding priority at the moment is public health and companies and individuals should follow Government advice to reduce the spread of Coronavirus.
“RenewableUK is engaging with our members and Government to work through the impacts of the Covid-19 on renewable energy projects, our supply chain which includes many small and medium-sized companies, and our workforce, and helping firms to access the support announced by the Chancellor.
“Renewables and the wider energy sector are critical infrastructure, and our industry will continue to work with Government to support the national effort to respond to the challenges of Covid”.
