Renewables in Scotland could define UK's low carbon future
Chris Huhne, energy and climate change secretary has said that the success of scheduled energy saving projects in Scotland, will define the UK's low carbon legacy.
Mr Huhne spoke at the Scottish Renewables conference in Glasgow through a low carbon video link. He announced that an agreement has been made with government departments, the Civil Aviation Authority and other organisations to find ways of resolving the opposition from the aviation industry regarding the development of onshore wind farms.
The Member of Parliament also said that the department will look into adjusting the transmission charges for renewables in a particular area, specifically the Scottish islands.
"My job as energy secretary is not to give you warm words. My job is to go through step-by-step, breaking through the barriers - so that you can get on with the job of delivering renewable energy in the simplest, quickest and cheapest way," said Mr Huhne.
With many energy suppliers raising their prices, the need for sustainable energy projects that are tailored to specific national and local needs, is becoming apparent.
