Slow progress on renewables

Progress in commissioning additional renewables capacity under the Non-Fossil Fuel Obligation and parallel schemes in Scotland and Northern Ireland continued to be slow in the first half of this year, with just 55MW commissioned to the end of June. Total renewables capacity commissioned under the schemes was 705MW on 30 June. Almost all of this year's additional capacity consists of landfill gas schemes. Only 19.4% of the projects offered subsidies under renewables orders throughout the UK since 1990 (ENDS Report 296, pp 15-16 ) had been commissioned.
