Carbon Trust waiting on delivery of UK low carbon strategy

Carbon Trust waiting on delivery of UK low carbon strategy
The success of the UK government's low-carbon strategy will be summed up by how well it is delivered, it has been suggested.

Responding to the launch of the Low Carbon Transition Plan, the Carbon Trust forecast a seven-fold increase in renewable energy power generation over the next 11 years.

Tom Delay, chief executive of the organisation, suggested that it would be possible for this to be achieved, but proposed that a transformation in "political, economic and industrial thinking" would be required, as well as new technology.

"To deliver this project we will need Herculean effort, and sustained political and engineering action," he said.

"We can boost our economy, create new industries and new jobs, but we must take action now or risk letting this tremendous opportunity slip between our fingers."

The Carbon Trust claims it has has helped businesses to reduce their CO2 emissions by 17 million tonnes since it was established in 2001.

It expects that its efforts to commercialise new technologies will contribute towards a further annual reduction of 20 million tonnes of CO2 emission by 2050.
