Germany’s ‘Energiewende’ (Energy Transition) is well publicised, and frequently referenced, as an example of how to (or not, depending on your point of view!) transform a country’s energy system away from low efficiency, high-carbon energy and towards an environmentally friendly, reliable energy system.
One of the fundamental pillars of the Energiewende is a support framework for renewable electricity generation. In the early 1990s, renewables accounted for less than 5% of yearly electricity generated in Germany. Today, the figure stands at around 35% - and the future direction of travel is clear.
2014 was a tough year for RSLs and 2015 looks set to be too. According to our latest research, carried out via in-depth interviews as part of Delta-ee’s Microgen Insight Service, which shows that although UK councils and not-for-profit housing associations’ level of awareness and appeal for low-carbon technologies (i.e. ASHP, GSHP) is increasing, this is not always translating into more sales.
The annual opportunity is far greater than represented by the current market lull, but the barriers – which are growing in number and size – must be addressed by the supply chain.
