Energy UK responds to the announcement of the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) consultation
Responding to the announcement of the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) consultation from BEIS today, Energy UK's chief executive, Lawrence Slade said:
“As a replacement to the Feed-in-Tariff, the Smart Export Guarantee has the potential to help create a market-led approach for small scale renewables in the domestic, community and SME space which will help drive down carbon emissions.
“It will however be important to ensure remuneration for the electricity generation is fair and that supplier obligations are applied consistently across the market so not to create distortions.
“We are looking forward to working with Government, as it is vital that our sector supports the development of small scale low carbon generation in order for us to achieve our climate change goals.”
