Energy networks commissioner urges action to ease decade-long delay for windfarms and solar arrays

New power lines in Britain should be built more quickly to ease the decade-long backlog of renewable energy projects waiting to connect to the electricity grid, according to a report commissioned by the government.

The government’s first energy networks commissioner, Nick Winser, used his report to warn ministers that without new cables and substations more green energy projects were likely to be rolled out before they could be connected to the grid.
