Lord Lilley: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what estimate the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has made of the domestic value added as a proportion of the total cost of capital investment in renewable energy capacity installed in the last five years, and in particular of the domestic value added as a proportion of the cost of (1) electric photo voltaic panels, (2) heat pumps, (3) batteries for electric cars, (4) wind turbines, generators and gear boxes, (5) wind turbine blades, and (6) platforms and legs for offshore wind turbines.
The Government has not made an assessment on this basis. However, in 2019, the Department commissioned a consortium to provide analysis on future energy innovation needs and to produce the Energy Innovation Needs Assessments. These include information on potential Gross Value Add, domestic and export growth opportunities of different technologies in the UK’s future energy system.
The Energy Innovation Needs Assessments are available on the GOV.UK website.
