New UK body to provide voice for renewables

A new organisation has been set up to represent the interests of renewable energy producers in Britain. The Renewable Power Association (RPA) aims to provide a single voice for renewables from the perspective of the renewable generator. Its main functions will be policy development, lobbying, and marketing and promoting the UK renewables industry. These functions would appear to overlap those of the Confederation of Renewable Energy Associations (CREA). But Gaynor Hartnell from the RPA stresses that the new body differs from CREA in that its membership comprises companies rather than trade associations. Companies, she feels, can react faster and more directly to market problems than associations who must seek the views of members. The RPA is due to be launched formally in early October, but is already active in responding to policy developments which it believes could pose a threat to renewable energy.
