Welsh Assembly Government launches its Low Carbon Revolution

Launching the Welsh Assembly Governments new Energy Policy Statement, ‘A Low Carbon Revolution’,
Environment Minister Jane Davidson said, “Wales once led the way in carbon-based energy. Our goal is to do the same for low carbon energy.” (So she did read my article in the Evening Post!)

The policy statement sets out how Wales has the potential to produce nearly twice the amount of electricity it currently uses through wholly renewable sources by 2025

Further points of interest:

The report says, “We remain of the view that the high level of interest in exploiting the huge potential for renewable energy reduces the need for other, more hazardous, forms of low carbon energy and obviates the need for new nuclear power stations.”

Peter Davies, Commissioner for Wales for the Sustainable Development Commission (SDC) said, I am particularly pleased that the statement tackles the two key energy themes identified by our Low Carbon Wales report: retrofitting the existing housing stock to vastly improve energy efficiency and the commitment to low carbon energy generation.”
