REA welcomes clarity on Fourth Carbon Budget

Long term signals vital for securing investment and creating jobs in renewables

The REA welcomes the Government's confirmation today that the Fourth Carbon Budget, setting greenhouse gas emissions limits for the period 2023 to 2027, will be set in line with the advice of the Committee on Climate Change and the target in the Climate Change Act of an 80% reduction in emissions by 2050 (compared to 1990 levels) [1].


REA Chief Executive Dr Nina Skorupska said:

"The decision to keep the Fourth Carbon Budget in line with the CCC's advice is very good news for the green economy and the pursuit of a sustainable future. This decision puts independent expertise and long-term thinking ahead of the possible lure of political point scoring. Across renewable power, heating and transport fuels, investors need certainty that when it comes to the low carbon economy, the Government is in it for the long-term."

The REA and the affiliated Solar Trade Association both supported the campaign calling on Government to back the Fourth Carbon Budget, which was led by WWF and gained support from over 100 businesses and organisations [2].

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
