Microgeneration Strategy: Power from the people

URN No: 06/993

Microgeneration Strategy cover

The objective of Government's Microgeneration strategy is to create conditions under which microgeneration becomes a realistic alternative or supplementary energy generation source for the householder, for the community and for small businesses.

In 2004 there were approximately 82,000 microgeneration installations in the UK. Yet a study commissioned by the DTI from the Energy Saving Trust suggested that by 2050, microgeneration could provide 30–40% of the UK's electricity needs and help reduce annual household carbon emissions by 15%.

The strategy was preceded by a consultation in summer 2005.
