There seem to be a number of articles like this at the moment which credit UK Gov with ambitious targets, but also report that actual action is lagging.The article also mentions how a little support for on-shore wind should lift it to 30GW by 2030, roughly twice what we have today. For info, the target for off-shore wind by 2030 is 40GW, up from 30GW, but again, that's a Gov pledge.CCC gives Westminster the hurry up on climate pledgesThe UK government has been ‘too slow’ to follow its ambitious climate targets with delivery, according to the country’s independent Committee on Climate Change (CCC).In two new progress reports, the CCC said that Downing Street’s Ten Point Plan, published at the end of last year, had yet to be backed up with firm policies including on renewable energy.The reports call on the government to outline clear targets to ramp up onshore wind and solar deployment by 2030.The CCC also wants to see continuing auctions for clean power contracts and reforms to the planning system to empower local communities who want new wind projects.
