The Government of United Kingdom is anticipating to reduce the public spending and to slash the inflating budget; this slash is expected to be performed on the solar energy sectors. If the government cut downs the investment towards the solar energy, this will lead to a major setback in the emerging low-carbon technology in the Britain. The low-carbon technology in the Britain is already moving at the slower pace than the Green technologies, the Green technologies are one of the fast growing and emerging technology in the Europe. The general manager of the solar cells producer Sharp Solar U.K Andrew Lee said that, if the government reduces the tariffs at this vital period, it will be ludicrous since many multinational companies are investing in the solar energy projects and more jobs are created via this project.
Japan based Sharp, has invested nearly $47.93 million in the United Kingdom solar company Wrexham, sited near the Liverpool, the aim of the Sharp was to twofold its manufacturing efficiency but currently it is worried by the government plan towards the cutting down in its multi-billion pound solar energy investment. The feed-in-tariff was introduced by the previous labor government to encourage small scale renewable energy and power projects, the feed-in-tariff scheme received more funding by the state government for solar power plants.
