OPINION: R&D tax relief can fuel growth in renewables


The UK’s renewable energy sector continues to adjust to the post-subsidy environment. The ending of onshore wind farm subsidies in 2016 and the closure of the renewables obligation (RO) mechanism for new solar capacity a year earlier has significantly affected financing within the sector. Earlier this year it was reported that investment into these areas of renewable energy fell by 56 per cent in 2017.
