UK government slashes support for non-marine renewables.

ROCs are cut for onshore wind,  biomass from plants or waste byproducts to generate energy, and hydropower. They are dropped for generating energy from landfill gas. The savings could be as little as £400m, and no more than £1.3bn. Guardian: “Ministers are sensitive to a growing clamour in sections of the media attacking high energy bills and blaming “green taxes” for the problem, even though research shows low-carbon subsidies make up only a small fraction of bill rises.”
