He said: "It is great to see this long awaited strategy setting out the government's ambitions for clean growth".

The WWF also commented on the published strategy, with head of energy and climate, Gareth Redmond-King saying: "The strategy's ambition is to be welcomed, however the details fall short of what we need to lead the United Kingdom to a green and prosperous future".

The new Clean Growth Strategy sets out how more than £2.5 billion will be invested to support low carbon innovation from 2015 to 2021. It's as big a change as the move from the age of steam to the age of oil and Britain is showing the way.

The UK's nascent ultra low emission vehicles sector is set to benefit from a promised £1bn investment to support the take up of EVs and other low carbon road vehicles, with the government also promising to develop "one of the best electric vehicle charging networks in the world" by investing an additional £80m in charging infrastructure.

Harrington added: "The government's Clean Growth Strategy will set out how the whole of the United Kingdom can benefit from the global move to a low carbon economy". The next round is planned for spring 2019.

The UK government will invest up to £100 million ($132 million) in carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS) technology and industrial innovation as part of its Clean Growth Strategy, published on Thursday.

"We've shown beyond doubt that renewable energy projects are an effective way to cut our emissions, while creating thousands of good jobs and attracting billions of pounds worth of investment". Technologies categorized as "less established" in CfD regulations include offshore wind; advanced conversion technologies, with or without combined-heat-and-power (CHP); anaerobic digestion, with or without CHP; dedicated biomass with CHP; wave; tidal stream; and geothermal, with or without CHP.

In a boon for carbon capture usage and storage (CCUS) technology proponents, the plan promises to invest £100m in "leading edge CCUS and industrial innovation to drive down costs", and to set up a CCUS Council in partnership with industry to help develop the option of deploying the technology at scale in the United Kingdom and to "maximise its industrial opportunity". "Onshore wind is the cheapest form of new power generation, and it would be exciting to see what projects in the right places could deliver for United Kingdom consumers".
