Under their new leader David Cameron, the Conservatives could be about to radically alter thier energy policy, as their try and improve their “green” credentials. Launching a review of their energy policy today, the shadow Trade and Industry spokesperson, Alan Duncan, has indicated that the party are looking for a greater proportion of energy to come from renewables, such as wind and solar. They are also suggesting that they might drop their historic support for nuclear power.
However, Duncan also suggested there could be “a new lease of life” for fossil fuels, based on clean-coal and carbon-capture technology. What do you think? The Tories are urging people to get involved at http://www.energyreview.info
