Welcome to the latest round-up. Whilst historically the Powerstar round-up has focused on summarising news and events from Powerstar, we have decided to change directions slightly and instead focus on updating you on wider news stories from the energy industry to keep you up to date with the ever-moving landscape of the UK’s energy sector.
Below is a selection of stories we think our audience will find of interest.
A £90 million fund has been announced to drive forward the next generation of green technologies, with energy storage, floating offshore wind and biomass highlighted as key priorities to help the UK transition to clean and green energy.

Technology giant Siemens has warned that UK manufacturers are failing to recognise the risks posed by aging infrastructure and critical assets, and warns of the risks of failing to address energy resilience.
Morrisons has laid down an ambitious new mark in the race amongst major retailers to demonstrate progress towards net zero, with a commitment to source all supplies from net zero carbon British farms by 2030.
A committee of MPs has found that despite the Government’s green rhetoric, ministers are failing to take net zero goals into account when setting policy and there has been little coordination between central and local government on achieving emissions reductions.
