Do Britain’s power markets and policies need to change?
The UK Government has been providing support via the Energy Market Reform Act 2013, which has been key to the rapid development of the renewable energy industry. This initiative consisted of several tools that were intended to encourage the growth of the emergent renewables industry. However, as the renewable industry gets closer to price parity with fossil fuel generation, some of these instruments are gradually being removed.
Led by Dr Aidan Rhodes, Energy Futures Lab’s latest briefing paper is a review of the UK electricity market arrangements. The paper asks whether there is a need for fundamental reform to support the development of the next generation of renewable energy assets.
