Government asked to set 40GW solar target by 2030: A non-governmental organisation group is asking the government to deploy 40GW of solar energy by 2030.
The union which includes among other environmental organisations such as Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, WWF, the UK Green Building Council and the Green Finance Institute suggested that solar parks could support sustainable agricultural practices, biodiversity, soil regulation and air quality.
The coalition wants politicians to set a minimum target for the deployment of solar energy in the UK.
This is set to be in place with independent assessments of how much solar will be needed to help the UK meet net zero aims.
Solar Energy UK, says it is possible by 2030 to have deployed 40GW of solar energy, which we endorse and suggest should be the minimum target.
In an announcement, these organisation have been asked for support for other renewable generation technologies, such as offshore wind. they have also requested that the government develop a solar sector skills, training deal to support deployment and financing.
