The Renewable Energy Association has formed two new trade groups, UK Solar and UK Energy Storage.

Until last year, the REA was linked with the Solar Trade Association but they parted ways and with the new group, it seems, will speak more for solar firms itself.

REA Chief Executive Dr Nina Skorupska said: “Solar power is one of the first major renewable energy technologies set to compete with traditional energy sources without subsidy. The integration of solar as a major player in the UK energy mix will transform the power market.”

The aim for its other new group, UK Energy Storage, is to “drive the commercialisation” of the technology and bring down costs, added Ray Noble, REA Senior Advisor.
