    UK BACKS NEW ENERGY WITH BUCKS

    The Blair legacy must include his courageous, aggressive leadership in preparing Britain to deal with climate change, even in facing controversial questions like offshore wind and nuclear energy development.

    UK Announces Solar, Wind Grants
    May 25, 2007 (UPI)

    WHO
    British government’s Department of Trade and Industry's Low Carbon Buildings Program (LCBP)
    solar panels in the UK
    WHAT
    Hold removed, grants will be made available for homeowners’ micro-wind turbine and solar panel installations. New provisions: No monthly caps, planning permission required with application.

    WHEN
    - Announcement May 25. Applications open May 30.
    - LCBP launched April, 2006.

    WHERE
    Great (and we do mean GREAT) Britain.
    from the UK Energy Saving Trust (click to enlarge)
    WHY
    - $13.5 million allocated, $11.9 million additional budgeted.
    - Now $23.6 million more.
    - LCBP has funded 2,175 home installations: 242 mini-turbines, 313 Solar PV projects and 1,467 solar thermal heating systems.
    - New provisions designed to eliminate implementation issues which have plagued half the $13.5 million in grants allocated.

    QUOTES
    “The government is consulting on removing the need for planning permission for the majority of microgeneration installations, but it must be in place for LCBP grant applicants in the meantime.”
