The announcement by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy of an auction which will include solar next year appears to back prime minister Boris Johnson’s claims to be serious about the nation’s net-zero carbon ambition.

 

Prime minister Boris Johnson’s plans for next year’s capacity auction to include solar have been warmly welcomed.

 

The U.K. government appears to have welcomed solar, onshore wind and other well-established renewables technologies in from the cold by announcing plans for a new generation capacity auction next year.

 

The procurement round announced yesterday by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) will be the first to include “Pot 1” generation technologies solar, onshore wind, hydro, landfill gas, sewage gas and energy-from-waste plus combined heat and power (CHP) since 2015, when David Cameron’s government bowed to pressure to halt incentives for onshore wind farms.
