Andrew Smith – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Energy and Climate Change

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Andrew Smith on 2015-10-09.

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, what assessment she has made of the effect of recently announced changes in incentives for renewable energy generation on the UK’s carbon emissions.

Andrea Leadsom

The potential carbon emissions impacts of individual policy changes on renewable incentives have been set out in the accompanying Impact Assessments.

Even with the proposed changes, we are still on track to deliver at least 30% of the UK’s electricity from renewable sources by 2020 so our overall carbon savings will remain in line with our original projections.
