REA Chief Executive Gaynor Hartnell responds to Chris Huhne’s resignation from the Cabinet
“Chris Huhne was a strong advocate of the renewables agenda and no doubt his forcefulness will have been a key factor in securing a better outcome than many feared regarding the budgets for the Renewables Obligation, the Renewable Heat Incentive and the Feed-in Tariffs. The subsequent poor handling of the latter was regrettable. We would like the new incumbent to make rebuilding investor trust and confidence in the Government’s renewable energy policies their number one priority.”
