Renewable energy gets a public vote of confidence

February 2013

renewable energy news

As record output from wind energy was reported earlier this week, a major public attitude survey published by the government now reveals that 79% of the British public are in support of renewable energy.

Views on renewable energy are largely positive – 

  • More than 79% of people support the UK’s use of renewable energy to generate electricity, fuel and heat with 30% strongly supporting it and only 4% of people opposed.
  • While overall support for a range of renewable energy sources remained high, solar energy was found to have the highest levels of support (82%).
  • Just under two-thirds of respondents were in favour of onshore wind farms.
The findings tally with a series of polls from various sources produced during the past year, showing public support for wind turbines, solar PV, and other types of renewable energy.
 
“Consistent survey results show that the majority of people support the development of renewable energy which is encouraging for the sector.  The survey’s findings should give confidence to landowners and developers alike to invest in green technologies knowing that the majority of public are in support of the concept.  
 
Renewable energy is set to continue making an increasing contribution to the UK’s energy demand and we are delighted to be assisting both existing and new clients take advantage of this opportunity.” says Darren Edwards, Partner in Fisher German.
 
On 3 February National Grid reported that wind farms produced more than 5 gigawatts of power for the first time – enough to meet around 12% of the nation’s electricity demands.
