ETSU privatised


The Energy Technology Support Unit (ETSU), which manages the UK's renewable energy programme for the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), has been privatised. ETSU is part of AEA Technology, the specialist science and engineering services business that was formerly part of the Atomic Energy Authority. AEA was privatised for around £200 million at the end of September. Around 50% of its business is still nuclear related. According to a spokeswoman from AEA Technology, the privatisation will not change the way ETSU operates. "It will continue to manage the government's renewable energy programme as an autonomous group within AEA Technology," she says.
