National Infrastructure Commission report
The UK’s first ever National Infrastructure Assessment was published today (10 July) by The National Infrastructure Commission. It urges the UK Government to continue to provide support for onshore wind, solar and energy efficiency.
Responding, Fabrice Leveque, Senior Policy Manager at Scottish Renewables, said:
“Onshore wind is the cheapest form of new electricity generation so it’s no surprise that the Commission is calling on the UK Government to stop blocking new projects.
“Building a low-carbon energy system centred on renewables like solar and onshore wind would not only reduce consumer energy bills, it would also reflect public opinion which is strongly in favour of renewables.
“The UK Government should follow Scotland’s lead and aim to create an energy system high in renewables, harvesting the benefits of our clean, green energy resources.”
