RenewableUK is commenting on a new report by the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) which highlights the economic benefits of relying increasingly on a modern, clean, flexible power system in which renewable energy plays a mainstream role.
RenewableUK’s Executive Director Emma Pinchbeck said: “This report is very welcome, because it shows that building a modern, flexible low carbon energy system brings real benefits to consumers. It says costs are dramatically lower for flexible systems. So it makes perfect economic sense to rely on renewables to generate power. This is a green light to Government to drive on their work to replace outdated, clapped-out infrastructure with smart clean technology to meet our country’s energy needs”.
