The Renewable Energy Association (REA) has launched two new trade groups to represent the solar and storage industries respectively.
UK Solar and UK Energy Storage will begin work immediately with the REA’s existing members.
“Solar power is one of the first major renewable energy technologies set to compete with traditional energy sources without subsidy,” said Dr Nina Skorupska, chief executive, REA. “The integration of solar as a major player in the UK energy mix will transform the power market. Businesses, households and the public sector will see their energy bills reduced. It is the mission of UK Solar to support and drive the transition to this solar future,” she said.
