DECC Sec of State Greg Barker speaks at BPVA conference

DECC Sec of State Greg Barker is on now. A child like enthusiasm and a genuine zeal for his brief.  He seems less pleased to see that he was sharing a platform with his former boss.

Great to hear him talk of moving solar from a 'green, low carbon, nice to have CSR thing', to a pragmatic, hard nosed commercial decision.

The Secretary of State told us about the Lazarus like revival of the PV industry since his department cut the FiT in 2011. He's every right to crow; as government support has decreased, PV deployment has soared, to 3.2 GW in the UK in 2014.
