Innovation and Diffusion of Renewables and CHP in the UK: Regulation and Liberalisation

  • Gordon MacKerron
Part of the Sustainability and Innovation book series (SUSTAINABILITY)


This paper attempts to explain the broad policy context that has conditioned the rather limited extent of growth in renewable energy and CHP in the UK over the last 20 years. While the paper in this volume by Praetorius, Watson and Sauter concentrates on microgeneration, this paper looks at larger-scale versions of renewables and CHP.
