Who said renewable energy has been dealt a lethal blow by our Government ? Regen SW are extremely upbeat.

“Cognitive Dissonance: the state of having inconsistent thoughts, beliefs, or attitudes, especially as relating to behavioural decisions and attitude change”

  • “Let’s just imagine for a moment what we would have to say to our grandchildren if we failed. We would have to say, it was all too difficult,”  David Cameron, Paris ‘COP 21’ Climate Summit, 30th November 2015.
  • “New measures to deal with the projected over-allocation of renewable energy subsidies have been announced today” DECC announcement, 17 December 2015.


t many ways 2015 has been a spectacular year for clean energy with 60 GW of wind and 55 GW of solar deployed globally and global commitments to clean energy culminating in the Paris agreement. In the UK renewables topped 25 per cent of electricity generation for two quarters in a row. Perhaps it is this very success and the threat to incumbent business models it represents, that has led to the policy backlash in the UK over the last six months.

We at Regen have been inspired by the resilience and innovation in the sector – so strikingly on display at our Renewable Futures: Pathways to Parity conference. Working with our sector to develop new business models will be our key focus in the year ahead.

Our first event of 2016 will be our reception at the House of Commons on 13th January with Amber Rudd, on our Entreprenurial Women in Renewable Energy initiative.
