Carbon Trust response to the UK Government Clean Growth Strategy

Speaking at the Launch of the Clean Growth Strategy James Wilde, Director of Innovation, The Carbon Trust said:

The Carbon Trust welcomes a low carbon strategy that puts business and innovation at the heart of clean growth.  Offshore wind and energy efficiency are two critical immediate pillars for this approach and the great strides that have been made in recent years need to be accelerated.  The Offshore Wind Accelerator is a case study of how collaboration between the private sector and government can work successfully, bring down costs and accelerate clean growth.  We now need to drive this approach elsewhere to maximise the economic benefits clean growth and decentralised energy systems will bring to businesses that focus on the increasing low carbon opportunities.
