Renewables ‘more attractive’ for UK pension funds after subsidy cuts

first_imgHe told delegates at an infrastructure conference organised by the Financial Times that subsidies were needed to bring down the cost of energy generation, but that the “heavy” subsidy was always difficult for the government to sustain.“Those projects always had that risk,” he said, “whereas now, because the subsidy level is much lower going forward, the cost-production level of renewable projects is much less.“[The changes to subsidies are] actually a much more attractive and sustainable way of providing that power into the UK grid.”His views were shared by Mike Weston, chief executive of the Pensions Infrastructure Platform (PiP), who told IPE that certainty was “absolutely essential” when investing in long-term, buy-and-hold projects.“If you’re saying ‘Well, I can forecast that out five years, and after that it all gets woolly because we might have a new government in five years’ time that changes the policy’, then you inevitably have to put a risk premium on,” he said.“And then, ultimately, the projects get more expensive to be done, and the economics get more unpredictable.”The Church Commissioners indirectly own several wind farms, having acquired the land on which they sit as part of a farmland portfolio in 2014.They are also working with energy company Lightsource to develop solar power opportunities for rural property owned by the Church, and exploring the possibilities for wind farms on other rural real estate assets within its portfolio.The PiP, meanwhile, has recently launched a solar fund managed by Aviva.Click here for more on the pipeline of renewable projects ahead of the Paris climate change conference The UK government’s scaling back of feed-in tariffs for renewable energy makes energy projects more attractive and sustainable, according to the Church of England’s pension manager.Changes to subsidies for renewable projects, including rooftop solar, anaerobic digestion plants and wind farms, have been criticised in some quarters, coming ahead of the UK climate change conference in Paris.However, according to the Church Commissioners, responsible for managing the pension funds and endowments of the Church of England, the scaling back of subsidies may help in the long term.Roy Kuo, head of alternative strategies, said renewables were “more attractive” in the wake of the changes than they were before the cuts were announced.last_img read more

Jamal Crawford good to go for LA Clippers’ opener

first_img“It’s nothing,” he said. “I’ll be fine. No pain at all. I just don’t want it to get hit again in practice.”Crawford missed 18 of 82 regular-season games because of injury this past season, during which he averaged 15.8 points.Crawford talks Paul PierceSeventeen-year veteran Paul Pierce showed he’s still got it when he scored 14 of his 19 points off the bench during the fourth quarter of Thursday’s 115-109 come-from-behind victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. The 38-year-old from Inglewood High made four of his five 3-pointers in the fourth as the Clippers overcame a 35-point second-quarter deficit.Crawford intimated he isn’t surprised by anything Pierce does. “I watch so much basketball, like I really feel like I know everybody’s game pretty much inside and out,” Crawford said. “Paul is exactly who I thought he’d be.“I’ve actually known Paul since I was 14 years old in high school when I was living out there. We used to get in arguments then, so it’s funny to be on the same team now. It’s funny how our careers have gone.”Rivers reflects on Flip SaundersCoach Doc Rivers talked about some of the good times he had with Flip Saunders, the Minnesota Timberwolves head coach who died Sunday at age 60 after a fight with cancer.“We were very close, obviously,” Rivers said.His favorite memory came when Saunders began flying with the Boston Celtics during the 2012 playoffs as an unofficial assistant coach after Saunders had been fired by the Washington Wizards. Rivers and Saunders had a deal where they would walk back to the hotel after a road game, regardless of the distance. The first round in Atlanta was a two-mile walk.“Then we got to Philly and that walk was 7 1/2 miles. And so the first game we did it, the second game we did it,” Rivers said. “And then we lost (Game 6), which we could have knocked them out. We go back in the coaches’ room and everybody’s down. But Flip looked just despondent.“And I was like, ‘Why are you so upset?’ He said, ‘I don’t care about the loss, I’m pissed because we have to talk back to the hotel 7 1/2 miles.’ And we did it. He was just great to be around. I love him. It’s really sad.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img When Jamal Crawford suited up but did not play in the Clippers’ final exhibition game Thursday, it was somewhat alarming.But Crawford on Monday before practice declared himself fit and ready to roll for Wednesday’s season opener at Sacramento.“I was playing one-on-one before practice the other day (this past Wednesday) and I got hit,” Crawford said. “It just felt like my funny bone. I was like, ‘Oh, no problem.’ After practice, afterward at night, I was going to the store to get some bottled water and I looked at my arm and it was swollen.”Crawford was officially diagnosed as having a right triceps contusion. No big deal, the 35-year-old sixth man said.last_img read more
