Govt publishes further green proposals

Govt publishes further green proposals
The new Conservative-Liberal Democrat government has published further details of its plans to tackle the UK's energy and climate change problems.

Described by David Cameron as the guidelines for a "radical, reforming government", the document includes further information about the measures the new government will take to reduce carbon emissions and move to a low-carbon economy.

Policies, which were not previously mentioned in the coalition document published earlier this month, include the reformation of the energy market to include security of supply.

A review into the role of Ofgem will also take place, in which the organisation will be instructed to ensure this supply guarantee.

Support for the development of offshore wind power was also announced, including the creation of an offshore energy grid.

A pledge to work with the international community on a global approach to carbon emissions was made as well.

"We will work towards an ambitious global climate deal that will limit emissions and explore the creation of new international sources of funding for the purpose of climate change adaptation and mitigation," the document explained.

So, do the policies outlined in the report further back up Mr Cameron's pledge last week to create the "greenest government ever"?ADNFCR-1235-ID-19791350-ADNFCR
