Plans for shared offices will create renewables hub and and prepare for a clean energy future.
The Solar Trade Association (STA) has signed an agreement to lease part of RenewableUK’s offices. The move has practical benefits for both separate organisations and their different memberships. But it is also hoped that the creation of this “renewables hub” in London will foster a healthy exchange of ideas on the key strategic issues that are facing the energy sector as a whole, and the renewables industry in particular.
Hugh McNeal, RUK CEO, commented:
“We’re pleased to be welcoming the STA into this office. It makes sense for our two organisations to work alongside one another in this way, sharing space and sharing ideas on how we both deliver for our members and enable them to deliver vital, modern, and affordable power for UK consumers.
Jonathan Selwyn, STA Chair, commented:
“Solar and wind, together with complementary smart technologies, will deliver the cleanest and most cost effective solutions for our energy future. The STA works closely with RenewableUK, and other advocates for renewables, to articulate this vision. This move will enable us to develop areas of shared interest and tackle some of the common political barriers to development.”
