star this property answer text <p>It is very difficult to predict exactly how much of the onshore wind pipeline would have come forward without the measures proposed to close the Renewables Obligation to onshore wind, and therefore to make an assessment on jobs affected.</p><p>We will consider carefully the level of investment developers are likely to bring forward under proposals announced on 18<sup>th</sup> June.</p><p>We currently have enough projects in the pipeline to meet our 2020 renewable electricity objective of between 11-13GW of onshore wind capacity while remaining within the limits of what is affordable. This pipeline of projects will deliver new jobs across the UK.</p> more like this

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
