star this property answer text <p>DFID’s support to clean energy in Africa is delivered through a range of programmes. We provide funding to support the installation of more off-grid solar power such as through mini-grid projects (e.g. in Kenya and Rwanda). We are helping to establish markets in a number of African countries for household solar power so poor people have access to affordable clean energy. We are also supporting private sector solar projects through the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and development finance interventions such as CDC, the Private Infrastructure Development Group, and the Multilateral Development Banks.</p><p> </p><p>Over the last seven years the UK has provided 26 million people with improved access to clean energy and installed 1,600 MW of clean energy capacity.</p><p> </p><p>At the G7, the Prime Minister announced the UK would double its support to the GCF, the principal climate multilateral, to £1.44bn over the next four years, to help developing countries adapt to the impacts of climate change and shift away from fossil fuels to renewable energy such as solar power. A range of existing GCF projects are supporting solar power in Africa. For example a GCF project is helping 50 poor, rural communities in Mali to switch from fossil fuel-powered diesel generators and kerosene lamps to green energy by installing solar mini-grids.</p><p> </p><p>The Prime Minister announced at the UN Climate Action Summit funding of up to £1 billion for research, development and demonstration of new technologies and business models to unlock opportunities in developing countries for cleaner growth and better access to clean energy. Emerging technology areas to be supported include for example, energy storage, new cooling technologies, next generation solar, and technologies for industrial decarbonisation.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Government funding and leadership, alongside private sector investment, has supported the installation of more than 21,000 public chargepoints. This includes over 2,100 rapid chargepoints – one of the largest networks in Europe. The Government has already allocated further funding. In August it was announced that funding for local authorities through the On-street Residential Chargepoint Scheme (ORCS) would be doubled this financial year increasing from £2.5 to £5 million. Since 2017, 54 local authorities have applied and the ORCS will have helped deliver approximately 2500 chargepoints by the end of March 2020. Earlier this month the Treasury launched a £400m public-private Charging Infrastructure Investment Fund, with the first £70 million allocated for 3000 rapid chargepoints, which will double the number across the UK.</p><p> </p><p>In July, it was announced that the Government would launch a review into the national core rapid charging network along motorways and major A roads. We also want to ensure that chargepoints are easily accessible for all drivers which is why the Government announced in July that we want to see all new rapid and higher powered chargepoints provide debit or credit card payment by spring 2020.</p><p> </p><p>Most charging will continue to happen at people’s homes or workplaces. To support this we have launched a consultation, running from July to October 2019, on proposals for new private chargepoints to have smart functionality and related minimum device standards. Smart functionality will enable electric vehicles to charge off peak, reducing costs for consumers and demands on the energy system. We are also consulting to the same timescale on changing Building Regulations to require a chargepoint in every new home where there is an appropriate parking space, and minimum infrastructure provision in new non-residential buildings.</p>
