star this property answer text <p>We do not expect consumer bills to rise as a result of our proposals to end new subsidies for onshore wind. Indeed, those onshore wind projects unlikely now to go ahead would have cost hundreds of millions of pounds in Renewables Obligation (RO) subsidy over their lifetime. This Government is committed to bringing about the transition to low carbon generation as cost effectively and securely as possible.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is continuing to make progress towards the 2020 renewables target of 15% of final energy consumption from renewable sources. We are on track to meet the next interim target for 2013/14, with provisional figures showing 6.3% of final energy consumption came from renewable sources, against a target level of 5.4%.</p><p>The Government has set out its plan to meet the target, including an ambition for at least 30% of electricity demand to be met by renewable sources. This includes between 11 – 13 GW of electricity to be provided by onshore wind by 2020. We have enough onshore wind in the pipeline, including projects that have planning permission, to deliver this.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Onshore wind has made a valuable contribution to the UK energy mix in recent years but has now reached the point where there is enough capacity in the pipeline to help the UK to meet its 2020 renewable commitments. The grace period arrangements that we have proposed are intended to protect investor confidence in the wider renewable sector and balance the interests of onshore wind developers with consumers, who pay the cost of renewable electricity generation through their energy bill.</p><p>DECC is engaging with developers, investors and stakeholders, as we implement the manifesto commitment. We will consider carefully the level of investment that developers are likely to bring forward under the proposals announced by my rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State on 18 June.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Adaptation is a core component of the Paris Agreement, adopted by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in December last year. The Agreement includes a new long-term goal to strengthen adaptation and resilience and reduce vulnerability to climate change. This goal is aligned with the new Global Goals for sustainable development, particularly Goal 13 on climate action. Alongside this, the Paris Agreement includes commitments for each country to take action to adapt according to national circumstances, to share their adaptation planning and to cooperate to help those developing countries who need help to adapt to climate change.</p><p> </p><p>The UK has been and remains committed to leading calls to increase support for adaptation, and we aim to use 50 per cent of our International Climate Fund (ICF) to support adaptation in developing countries. The UK has already taken significant action to support vulnerable countries to adapt to climate change and cope with climate-related events. For example, we have increased our support for climate risk insurance initiatives, such as the Africa Risk Capacity Initiative and the Pacific Catastrophe Risk Assessment and Financing Initiative. We are also funding actions that help build communities’ resilience, including through support for climate services and early warning systems which have an important role to play in helping poor and vulnerable communities be better prepared and more resilient to climate-related risks.</p>
