Renewable Energy UK 2024 by Red Chilli

As we enter 2024, the UK’s focus on renewable energy grows stronger, showing its dedication to net-zero goals. Red Chilli is leading in matching top talent with key projects, driving these essential initiatives forward..

UK’s Forward-Thinking Renewable Projects in 2024

The UK government plans to significantly increase its renewable energy capacity, with a notable focus on offshore wind projects. In 2024, the UK plans an auction to award 10GW of offshore wind projects. This move aims to reach 50GW by 2030.

This move not only aims to enhance the UK’s energy security but also its position in the global renewable energy sector, despite challenges posed by rising industry costs. The government has responded to these challenges by increasing the subsidy price offered in renewable energy auctions, demonstrating a flexible and supportive approach to achieving its green energy goals​​.

Furthermore, the UK is making a major push into the hydrogen economy. It plans substantial funding and initiatives to scale up low-carbon hydrogen production. The goal is to deploy up to 10GW of low-carbon production capacity by 2030. New funding rounds are available for companies to develop hydrogen projects. This shows the UK’s commitment to diversifying renewable energy sources and spurring economic growth through green investments.

Battery storage projects are also gaining momentum, with Eku Energy initiating significant projects in Basildon, Essex, and Loudwater, Buckinghamshire. These projects represent a combined capacity of 130MWh and are expected to be operational by the end of 2024. Battery storage is crucial for balancing electricity supply and demand, facilitating the integration of renewable energy into the grid and supporting the UK’s target for a zero-carbon electricity system by 2035​​.
