How the proposals of clean power projects have been approved, however might not be built. Here is what the analysis finds.
At NXTGEN bps, we understand how important it is to move into being more sustainable and environmentally friendly. It is our mission to be able to invest in sustainable energy to help to tackle the crisis of climate change. By using renewable energy, it is not only a sustainable way to help reduce our carbon footprints and CO2 levels, but also it is much more economically viable too. As we are passionate about creating a more sustainable world to live in, we have taken it upon ourselves to try to help to make a change. This is why we are now providing a service of fully sustainable battery generators. Eliminating our reliance on diesel and petrol powered generators. NXTGEN BPS’s generators can be charged in one of two ways, solar powered or battery charging, with our generators providing consistent power with no noise or carbon emissions. With our very own solar panels and generators, we believe that we are creating a positive change in tackling global warming, making the world a greener and more sustainable place.
Hundreds of clean energy projects are not being built despite winning planning permission, making it harder for the country to ditch more polluting energy forms and meet climate targets, new analysis has warned.
Just 164 projects are currently under construction, according to the Local Government Association (LGA), while a further 1,300 wind, solar, hydrogen, waste and other projects are stuck in the pipeline.
The LGA cited problems connecting the projects to the electricity grid as a key barrier to getting them off the ground – an issue increasingly complained of by the industry.
Some developers are told they will have to wait years or decades to join the grid, which connects the power source – like a solar farm – with the end user, which could be a hospital building or a householder turning on the kettle.
An LGA spokesperson told Sky News: “Connection to the grid is increasingly getting the attention it deserves.
“We can talk about all these cool projects like solar, wind, heat, and so on. But if you can’t link them up so that people can actually use the power they’re generating – that’s a major problem.”
The power system is gradually being shifted away from fossil fuels towards a variety of cleaner power forms – including things like biomass or reusing heat from sewage works – with the aim of decarbonising the energy network by 2035.
