The government has published its Clean Growth Strategy

It's as big a change as the move from the age of steam to the age of oil and Britain is showing the way.

"Ministers are seizing the global opportunity to lead on low-carbon economic growth".

The funding covers programmes in the energy, transport, agriculture and waste sectors, including £265m for smart energy systems and £1bn to promote electric and other low-emission vehicles.

"The importance of positive government messaging on the low carbon agenda for investment confidence is often overlooked and today's clear cross-government commitment to deliver on the UK's climate targets will be welcomed by businesses", said Nick Molho, executive director of the Aldersgate Group.

The Land & Buildings Investment Management Llc holds 1.08 million shares with $33.79M value, down from 1.94 million last quarter. Financial & Investment Management Group Ltd holds 0.12% of its portfolio in Calamos Global Total Return Fund for 24,817 shares.

The UK Government has announced that the next wave of funding worth £557m to less established renewable energy projects will be offered in 2019.

In a 164-page document crammed with 50 low-carbon policies and plans, the Government has planted the seeds for a new era of green economic growth which replicates the offshore wind model and offers major opportunities for United Kingdom plc.

"This announcement secures cheap, home-grown, clean energy for the UK".

RenewableUK, which speaks for the wind and marine renewables industries, welcomed the strategy and the commitment to the development of a Sector Deal for offshore wind, but said that "what's missing is clarity on how the lowest-cost technology, onshore wind, can deliver for United Kingdom consumers".

The Trailer For New Mutants Is Here
The last two years have seen Fox step out of their comfort zone and embrace a bold, experimental approach to X-Men movies. Of these four movies, New Mutants is the next to hit theaters, with an April 2018 release date.

As per the government, the last auction which was held this September, saw the cost of offshore wind being reduced to half compared to the first auction held in 2015.

Responding to the announcement, RenewableUK's chief executive, Hugh McNeal said "This government has unveiled an ambitious plan which sets us firmly on a course to deliver the modern, clean energy system which the United Kingdom needs". This fantastic cost reduction is a reminder of what innovative industry can deliver when backed by competitive auctions.

The UK Government has launched a scheme to invest up to £10 million in low carbon heating technologies.
