notes emissions in 2013 were

12% lower than 2007 and 28%

below their 1990 level. There

was good progress in areas

including implementing fuel efficiency of new cars, wind generation

investment and Electricity

Market Reform; but only limited

progress in areas including

uptake of electric vehicles and

heat pumps, and demonstration

of carbon capture and storage.

The report says progress on

carbon reduction is consistent

with the EC proposed target to

cut EU emissions by 40% in

2030 on 1990 levels.

DEPARTMENT OF BUSINESS

INNOVATION & SKILLS

BIS is the department for economic growth

and invests in

skills and education to promote

trade, boost innovation and help

people to start and grow a business. In early 2014 it published

a report on UK offshore wind

supply chain capabilities and

opportunities. This looked in

depth at manufacturing needs

for turbine towers, blades, castings and forgings,

bearings,

drive trains, nacelle components

and how the UK is placed to

meet those needs. In each area

it looked at UK market readiness, supply chain position and

synergies between offshore

manufacturing needs, and those

of companies in other sectors

including aerospace, automotive, nuclear,

oil & gas, composites

and rail.
