Greenpeace have responded to the Government announcement on Industrial Strategy stating “we need more support for new offshore wind, not more nuclear.”
Kate Blagojevic, Greenpeace Head of Energy said:
“The government’s Industrial Strategy is crucial for delivering a forward-looking, highly skilled and innovative 21st century British economy. Renewable technology and low carbon transport are the way forward – so it is great to see the government’s focus on electric vehicles and on skilling up our workforce. But, we need more support for new offshore wind, not more expensive and hazardous nuclear. The Hinkley project is widely recognised as the most expensive object on earth and other nuclear projects are just as unpopular and uncertain power.
The world is changing fast and there’s a global race to dominate clean tech markets
“Globally, investors are looking to the future of renewables not the nuclear of the past. The world is changing fast and there’s a global race to dominate clean tech markets. If the UK is to win that race, the Industrial Strategy needs to support cutting edge, reliable and homegrown clean technologies.
Backing innovation in offshore wind power, energy storage and electric vehicles, and driving a technically-skilled UK workforce to steer these industries, will attract investment into the UK, create new jobs and export opportunities, and make sure we have a healthy economy and environment.”
