Financial Mail revealed this weekend that there could still be hope for the UK’s solar industry. According to an article published in The Daily Mail, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is working on a plan to save the future development of large-scale systems.

Last Thursday the Solar Power Portal reported that DECC had made the controversial decision to go ahead with its proposed feed-in tariff cuts, affecting systems over 50kW. Industry has been up in arms since this announcement, claiming that the decision serves only to kill the industry, losing thousands of people their jobs, billions of pounds of investment and casting yet more uncertainty over the as-yet-untouched residential sector.

It is now thought that ministers plan an abrupt change of policy in an effort to rescue the industry.
