Energy policy ‘too wind focused’
Posted by keelynet on August 26, 2009
This is right on target, too many eggs in one basket, we need to broaden our scope of research into self-contained energy sources.
“The UK must invest more in nuclear and clean coal energy and put less emphasis on wind power if it wants a secure low-carbon future, business leaders say. The CBI says government energy policy is “disjointed” and it is urging a “more balanced” energy mix.
“The government’s disjointed approach is deterring the private sector investment needed to get our energy system up to scratch, bolster security and cut emissions,” said CBI deputy director general John Cridland.
“While we have generous subsidies for wind power, we urgently need the national planning statements needed to build new nuclear plants. “If we carry on like this we will end up putting too many of our energy eggs in one basket.” – Source
