U.K. to Include Solar in Renewable-Power Strategy for First Time

Oct. 2 (Bloomberg) -- The U.K. will include solar power in its renewable-energy strategy this year for the first time, according to a government official.

Solar will appear in the so-called renewables road map, Alasdair Grainger, in charge of feed-in tariffs at the Department for Energy and Climate Change, said today in Birmingham. The government will also unveil a detailed strategy for photovoltaics in the next few months, he said.

The road map, Britain’s annual policy update for clean power, has so far only included technologies such as wind energy. The document is expected in late October, according to Ray Noble, a consultant for the Solar Trade Association.
