As 2012 and a new year is almost upon us, it is a good time to reflect on 2011 for PLC Public Sector and its subscribers. In this post we take a look at our most popular content of the year and the new content we have published.
Nick Maltby, Head of Projects (Commercial), Bircham Dyson Bell:
After what seems to have been an interminable wait we finally (1 December 2011) have HM Treasury’s “Reform of the Private Finance Initiative“, which sets out 44 questions as part of a consultation on what the new model should look like.
In this post, I look at what the government is seeking to do and what models exist that may enable it to achieve its goals.
Jackie Gray, Director, Dickinson Dees LLP:
Assuming the government pushes through its proposed cut to the Feed in Tariff (FIT) rates for solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, we are now only a matter of days away from the 12 December deadline for installing solar PV before the rate drops from 43.3p/kWh to 21p/kWh for the average domestic PV installation. As a result, and together with other changes proposed to the FIT scheme from April 2012, many public sector organisations are currently re-assessing the future viability of solar PV as part of their energy efficiency plans.
