UK government urged to focus on energy efficiency for low carbon switch

UK government urged to focus on energy efficiency for low carbon switch
The transition to a low-carbon society in the UK will require a much greater emphasis on business energy-efficiency measures, it has been claimed.

Speaking in response to the publication of the government's Low Carbon Transition Plan, an organisation helping firms to improve their environmental performance has claimed that renewable energy is only "part of the solution".

According to the Cumbria Green Business Forum, the plans outlined in the report will help to bring about positive change in current UK business practices and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

"We do need to focus on renewable energy as a primary target for that. For so long now, the UK has relied upon its own indigenous forces of gas and oil," said John Barwise, chairman of the group.

However, he added: "I would like to see a bigger emphasis on energy efficiency than is currently the case."

The Low Carbon Transition Plan calls for ten percent of the required annual emissions cut between now and 2020 to come from greater energy-efficiency in the workplace.
