Climate Change Minister Greg Barker today launched a formal consultation document on the coalition’s Microgeneration Strategy

When coupled with the roll out of smart meters and the Green Deal – the coalition’s national energy efficiency programme – small scale power generation could help to reduce bills and make people more energy self sufficient.

Greg Barker said:

“I am planting the seeds for growth so we can see small scale energy generation flourish in homes, businesses and communities. All elements of the industry, from standards and access to information to technology and skills must be ready to deliver and grow.

“We’ve already pledged financial support to encourage people to install kit like solar panels and heat pumps, today’s consultation will ensure that the industry and consumers have the confidence to invest.”
