Davey's Annual Energy Statement lacks real solutions
Responding to Energy Secretary Ed Davey’s Annual Energy Statement today (Thursday 31 October 2013) Friends of the Earth Energy Campaigner Sophie Neuburg said:
“Ed Davey is right, bills are soaring thanks to rising gas prices - but promoting easier switching is like rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic.
“The real solutions - massive investment in energy efficiency and a rapid switch to renewables - are conspicuous by their absence from Ministers' plans.
“By siding with the big energy firms and blocking a clean power target, Davey has shown he is more dormouse than ‘tiger’ when it comes to fighting for the environment.”
