BSRIA disappointed with US President's decision on Paris Accord

BSRIA chief executive, Julia Evans (pictured), said: “It is extremely regrettable and disappointing that President Trump has decided not to stick to the path in combatting climate change. This worrying u-turn is a huge blow to the policies aimed at improving climate change and the associated agenda around renewable technologies. Clearly, this represents a missed opportunity for such renewable technology.”

BSRIA has expressed its disappointment that the USA will leave the Paris Climate Deal Agreement following President Trump’s recent statement.

The association continues to emphasise the importance of collective action and the global importance of the agreement and its role for renewable technologies. However, it says it is now evident that President Trump takes a very different approach to the environment.

The Paris Agreement is a climate deal agreed by the world's leaders that puts us on a sustainable low-carbon path. Now governments must turn global ambition into national reality and industry will want to see domestic policies that demonstrate commitment to this goal.

BSRIA chief executive, Julia Evans (pictured), said: “It is extremely regrettable and disappointing that President Trump has decided not to stick to the path in combatting climate change. This worrying u-turn is a huge blow to the policies aimed at improving climate change and the associated agenda around renewable technologies. Clearly, this represents a missed opportunity for such renewable technology.”

She continued: “But – as part of a worldwide industry – we can’t let this decision steamroll or derail future technology in renewables and the move to reduce greenhouse gases and carbon usage in the built environment. BSRIA is committed to supporting the UK government in reducing carbon and, indeed, its position on this.”

Ms Evans concluded: “When the Paris Summit Agreement was made in December 2015, most of the world signed up to play its part in halting climate change – including the US. Global warming is a real problem, as an industry we have the skills, technology and the desire to make a difference. BSRIA said then that the deal must provide a stable environment that enables investment in cleaner, more affordable and more secure energy generation, including renewable and clean technologies.”

Believe the hype over hydrogen heating

The Energy and Utilities Alliance (EUA) has labelled calls for the Government to drop funding for hydrogen as short sighted and ‘without consideration of UK consumers.

Isaac Occhipinti, head of external affairs, EUA said: “Academics, policymakers, think tanks, environmentalists and industry all agree that tackling emissions from heating is ‘difficult’, ‘hard to do’ and that we ‘need to utilise all of the tools available’.”
