Renewable energy investment urged

Renewable energy investment urged
Urgent investment in renewable energy is required if the UK is to meet targets for reducing the effects of climate change.

That is the opinion of Friends of the Earth, which has called for options such as carbon capture and storage to be fully explored.

The organisation also suggested that money needs to be invested into energy efficiency projects and low carbon fuel research.

Nick Rau, energy campaigner at Friends of the Earth, said that the development of environmental schemes could also help to reduce unemployment figures in Britain.

He commented: "To play its fair share in tackling climate change, Britain must reduce its emissions by at least 40 per cent by 2020.

"This means massive and urgent investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency and green technology – which will create hundreds of thousands of UK jobs."

The British Geographical Survey is currently looking into using the North Sea as a site to store CO2.
