2019-21 Session
That this House welcomes the May 2019 recommendation of the Committee on Climate Change that the cheapest renewables, onshore wind and solar, should have a Government backed route to market; recognises that the deployment of renewables needs to be accelerated through the 2020s in order to deliver net-zero emissions; notes that onshore wind and solar have been excluded from the Government’s Contracts for Difference (CfD) auctions since the first round in 2014; and calls on the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to ensure that future auction rounds are open to both technologies.
