This article reports on financial incentives for low-carbon generation that will be introduced through the introduction of the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme and new targets for renewable energy. According to Ofgem, it will prefer to see government focus on reducing carbon dioxide emissions rather than setting targets for particular technologies. The regulator pointed out that the proposal to band the obligation fundamentally changes the nature of the scheme.
