千亿体育登录The REA has a long history of working to progress and champion the solar industry. The Association played a key role championing the Feed-in Tariff (FiT) and subsequently supported the sector’s growth in the 2010’s through training and detailed policy work.
From 2015 the REA argued for the sector in the face of cuts to the Feed-in Tariff, closure of the Renewables Obligation, removal of LECs, scrapping of the Zero Carbon 千亿体育登录s policy, hiking of VAT on solar and battery storage installations, and closure of Pot 1 of the Contracts for Difference scheme.
Recent REA work in solar is focused on establishing a route to market for solar at domestic, commercial, and standalone scales, amending building regulations, and supporting the emergence of a more flexible power sector.
The REA also works closely with the MSC scheme and it’s wholly-owned subsidiary Renewable Energy Assurance Ltd (REAL) runs the for domestic solar installers.
