EVs and public charging network ‘vital for key workers’ during coronavirus crisis

A survey conducted by Zap-Map and the REA asked more than 3,000 EV users about their usage – 83% of users are still reliant on their EV for essential travel

UK Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment Association and REA announce merger

The trade associations suggest the partnership will provide a ‘communications boost’ to the UK’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure

Guest Blog: Richard Burrell – Time to turn up the heat on decarbonisation targets

Decarbonising the UK’s heat network is one of the biggest energy challenges we face. The role of bioenergy, including biomass, in helping meet net zero heat emissions, has been convincingly outlined by the Renewable Energy Association’s (REA) Bioenergy Strategy report this week.

UK ‘must use bioenergy with carbon capture and storage to go net-zero’

The Renewable Energy Association has called on policymakers to ensure these technologies fulfil their potential as valuable tools to decarbonise the economy

Biomass can help deliver much-needed UK heat decarbonisation

Biomass could play a pivotal role in heat decarbonisation and help the UK meet its renewable heat targets, AMP Clean Energy said today. Around 6% of heat in the UK currently comes from renewable sources, but EU targets require it to double to 12% by 2020. The Renewable Energy Association (REA) report ‘Bioenergy in the […]

UK’s EV industry ‘must prioritise consumer ease of use’

The Renewable Energy Association (REA) says collaboration and interoperability are key to wide-scale adoption

Government ‘must take charge on shift to EVs’

A clear government strategy is needed if the UK is to rapidly shift from combustion to electric vehicles (EVs). That’s according to the Renewable Energy Association (REA), which suggests ambitious policies combined with advancements in global and regional markets could drive the phase out of diesel and petrol engines before they’re banned in 2040. The […]

EV industry collaboration starts the engine

The Renewable Energy Association (REA) hosted its first Electric Vehicle Group meeting last week. More than 70 individuals from leading electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing, grid management and charging infrastructure companies attended to start the collaborative process of accelerating the sector’s growth. The group will focus on developing intelligent charge point infrastructure, building links with the […]

Fresh trade groups for solar and energy storage

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 […]
