Government changes in 2015 to the feed in tariffs, the push for Hinkley Point, the controversial decision to stop Local Authorities blocking “Fracking” applications and the EU referendum result has resulted in a period of uncertainty, confusion and a lack of investment in low carbon projects.
Not all is lost however and funds, initiatives and projects to support the reduction in CO2 are still available. Come to our free breakfast workshop and hear about some of the recent developments.
