UK government urged to invest more in renewable energy

UK government urged to invest more in renewable energy
The UK government must make more of an effort to invest in the country's sustainable energy supplies, it has been claimed.

According to the Renewable Energy Centre, the government has acknowledged the need to increase the number of renewable energy projects within the UK, but it is "too little, too late".

Angela Gallacher, a spokesperson for the organisation, suggested that Alistair Darling's recent Budget may have seemed green, but actually included little support for wind and wave projects or carbon capture and storage.

She said: "In order for the UK to become world leaders in renewables much more needs to be done to pave the way for easier investment."

Ms Gallacher was speaking after energy company EDF announced that it is planning to sell one of its UK nuclear power plants.

The low-carbon technology expert claimed that nuclear power will be a crucial part of the country's future energy mix as it is cleaner than fossil fuels.

"However it is also critical that the processes involved with nuclear (power) are re-addressed to ensure low carbon emissions," she added.

EDF Energy is considering selling either its nuclear facility at Dungeness in Kent or its Heysham operation in Lancashire.
