Merton Rule – why is it important

One of the key themes emerging at the Conservative conference fringe events attended yesterday and today was the future and the importance of the Merton Rule.  Cutting through the rhetoric found at any political party event, there were interesting and important comments from the Micropower Council. citing the current political football being played as possible serious consequences for the industry

The Merton Rule, also known as PPS 22, requiring a proportion of any development to source energy from alternative means, is driving the devlopment, capacity and skills of the mircopower companies, that in time will become essential in meeting targets such as the 2016 zero carbon homes.

Take this in conjunction with the recent Mind the Skills Gap skills report , and we could be heading for a problem of skills and knowledge to achieve targets and milestones.
