Amber Rudd appointed new Energy Secretary

Commenting on Amber Rudd’s appointment as Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, CEO of the Solar Trade Association Paul Barwell said:

“We very much welcome Amber Rudd’s appointment as Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, and look forward to working with her to make sure solar reaches its full potential. We need stable policy support and strong leadership on solar – just one final push could get rooftop solar to zero subsidy by the time this Government leaves office.”

“We also hope that Amber Rudd’s experience in finance, her previous experience in the Treasury and her real understanding of the needs of new and growing businesses will mean that she recognises the value that the UK’s thousands of small and medium sized solar companies can bring.”
