Update of UK Renewables Roadmap includes solar PV as a key technology.

DECC: “…the UK is on track to meet the first interim target on the way to the ambitious target of 15% renewable energy consumption by 2020.”“…In 2011, renewable energy accounted for 3.8% of energy consumption, up from 3.2% in 2010. …In the year July 2011 to June 2012, the total electricity generation from renewables increased by 27% reaching 37.9TWh from a total of 14.4GW installed capacity. ….Solar photovoltaics (solar PV) recorded the highest growth with a five and a half times increase in capacity to 1.4GW by the end of June 2012 compared to June 2011. Solar PV is now identified as a key technology in this Renewable Energy Roadmap Update (the Update) as costs have fallen dramatically and deployment increased markedly. ….Currently the UK has 1.4GW of installed solar PV capacity in operation73. Analysis indicates the market could bring forward a total of 7–20GW74 75 of solar PV by 2020 (equivalent 6-18TWh).”
