James Court, Head of Policy and External Affairs at the Renewable Energy Association said:
“Whilst we see marginal increases, it is disappointing the government hasn’t heeded warmings from the industry with AD not escaping the same slash in support seen by other small scale renewables last year.
“AD was once heralded as a key technology by the Government, as it should be. AD has the potential to be a large contributor to our efforts to decarbonise, across heat, transport and in this case, electricity. It’s good for farmers and the wider rural economy, it’s good for reducing our waste and it’s a key part of any future circular economy. Yet it now faces a huge decrease in support.
“There is now a serious policy gap for the industry, which needs to be addressed."
