unstar this property answer text <p>The Government’s target to reach a total of 2.4% of GDP invested in R&amp;D by 2027 will mean increasing the numbers of highly trained people working in research and innovation including those undertaking doctoral training.</p><p> </p><p>Business-academia collaborations, decisions by internationally mobile companies to locate their R&amp;D functions in the UK and the development of industrial clusters of companies all rely on access to pools of talented researchers. In addition, industrial clusters, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry, are often co-located in regions where there are also high quality research intensive universities. This co-location enables the flow of graduates and post-graduates between institutions and companies.</p><p> </p><p>More broadly, a 2015 review on the impacts of doctoral training found that the overwhelming majority of doctoral graduates continued to be involved in the creation of new knowledge, innovation and development of new products and processes, both in the academic and business sectors. Employers highly valued the specialists knowledge and problem-solving skills possessed by doctoral graduates. <a href="https://www.ukri.org/files/skills/full-report-idc-pdf/" target="_blank">https://www.ukri.org/files/skills/full-report-idc-pdf/</a></p>

Friend the Secretary of State made a statement to the House on Monday 25 June 2018 setting out our position on the support for the proposed Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon project. The Department’s analysis of the project and the proposed follow-on programme of lagoons was that it did not represent value for money. This remains the Department’s position.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has said it is open to considering well developed, privately developed tidal range projects.

For example, they are eligible for the Rural Community Energy Fund (RCEF) which re-opened at the end of May. The RCEF is a £10m programme which supports rural communities who are looking to develop renewable energy projects. Grants are available for feasibility studies to test out ideas, and if viable, grants are also available to assist with pre-development of projects.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Energy Company Obligation (ECO), worth £640m per annum, requires larger energy suppliers to install energy efficiency measures, including insulation. Since January 2013, around 2.5 million measures have been installed in nearly 2 million homes under the scheme; around two thirds of measures have been insulation.</p><p> </p><p>The latest iteration of the scheme, ECO3, is focussed entirely on low income and vulnerable households and will last until March 2022. We estimate that around 1 million insulation measures will be installed under ECO3.</p><p> </p><p>Furthermore, the domestic private rented sector minimum energy efficiency standards, which were introduced in April 2018, require private landlords to upgrade their properties to an EPC Band E or better and we estimate that around 40% (350,000) of the measures installed as a result will be insulation measures.</p><p> </p><p>We have also taken steps to encourage consumers to take action themselves, including through the creation of the Simple Energy Advice portal to offer impartial information and advice on energy efficiency measures and working with industry to establish the TrustMark quality mark to help improve consumer confidence in measures such as insulation.</p>
