star this property answer text <p>I continue to believe that Community Energy remains an important part of the energy system, delivering energy efficiency and demand management, supporting switching and engaging the wider community on the key challenges of the energy transition and wider climate change as well as owning generation assets.</p><p> </p><p>Renewable Energy co-operatives are one of the business models that we support and was a key part of the criteria in a number of community initiatives and support mechanisms the department funded in the past. This will also be the case for the Rural Community Energy fund which will reopen at the end of this month and provide grants to community groups for feasibility studies and development of business cases for local energy projects.</p><p> </p><p>We also work closely with community networks like Community Energy England who manage the community energy hub which shares best practice, case studies and as part of that provides advice and support for the creation of community energy co-operatives.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is convinced of the need for urgent action on climate change, which is why we asked the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) for advice last October on the implications of the Paris Agreement for the UK’s long-term emissions reduction targets, including on setting a net zero target.</p><p> </p><p>The CCC published their advice to Government on 2 May 2019. It sets out a path for the UK to become the first major economy to legislate to end our contribution to global warming entirely. We are studying the CCC’s comprehensive, ground-breaking report, and are committed to responding in due course.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As independent and autonomous institutions, higher education (HE) providers are responsible for decisions regarding the contracts they offer to academics. Like all employers, HE providers have a duty of care to their staff. The department expects them to take this very seriously.</p><p>I gave a speech on 7 May that focused on early career researcher contracts. I am keen that early career academics do not get lost from policy debates – particularly around key issues like mental health and wellbeing. I am looking forward to the upcoming publication of the revised Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers, and I am serious about taking this forward.

Of course, the text of the regulation has not been finalised, including important aspects such as the terms of third-country participation, and we will need to consider the regulation as a whole.</p><p> </p><p>Ultimately, any decisions about our participation in the next Erasmus+ programme will also be a matter for wider negotiations about our future relationship with the EU.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There is no set timeframe for how long it takes the Office for Students (OfS) to process an application. This is because a final registration decision is dependent on a number of factors. These include the completeness of the application, the scale of the information requested by the assessor during the assessment process and the length of time taken by the provider to respond to such information requests. The time taken for the provider’s bespoke access and participation plan to be negotiated and approved also has an impact on the length of the process.</p> more like this
