The Government has announced a further £55.5 million for renewable energy, with £50 million more being donated by the National Lottery, on top of the Prime Minister’s announcement of £100 million for renewables last week.

The Government’s £55.5 million fund, announced on 10 March by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), is for renewable energy research and development and will cover a wide range of technologies, including wind, hydro and solar energies, and biofuels. It also covers research and development into new technologies such as fuel cells, and will be available over three years.
