star this property answer text <p>Solar PV is a UK success story. In 2013 we estimated that solar capacity would reach 10-12GW by 2020. We now expect Government support to bring forward around 13 GW by 2020. The Feed-in Tariff remains open to solar PV which provides an incentive for businesses to invest in rooftop solar.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The design of HS2 has sought to minimise disruption to the conventional rail network during construction. While the majority of construction works will not affect the existing railway, ‘possessions’ will be needed so that works on or near the existing railway can be done safely.</p><p> </p><p>As many as possible of these works will be undertaken at night and weekend maintenance periods so as to minimise disruption to passenger and freight services. However, for certain major HS2 works that cannot be accommodated within these maintenance periods, possessions of a longer duration will be required.</p><p> </p><p>Possessions will be booked by or through Network Rail (NR) in accordance with standard industry processes and will be planned to minimise disruption. In planning engineering works HS2 Ltd and NR will work with train operators and freight operators to make sure there are suitable alternative route and travel options available.</p><p> </p><p>The possessions planning process includes consultation with the wider railway industry, including operators and users, to ensure that the relevant information is provided, that the possessions are considered in the context of wider railway operations, and that appropriate mitigation measures are put in place. Where compensation is due for the impacts of possessions on operators, it is anticipated such compensation will be provided in accordance with standard industry processes.</p><p> </p><p>We continue to work with HS2 and other organisations to reduce the impact of works.</p>
