MPs in favour of a clean power target in the Energy Bill

Senior Conservative Tim Yeo MP has introduced an amendment for a clean power target to the Energy Bill. This will be voted on in the coming weeks. MPs can show their support by adding their name to his amendment. We need 321 MPs to do this to win. 

This page keeps track of which MPs have committed to support it. So far the Labour Party, Scottish National Party, Plaid Cymru and Green Party have pledged to support it. The Liberal Democrat party overwhelmingly voted to adopt a 2030 decarbonisation target as party policy at their conference in September 2012.

We need Liberal Democrat backbenchers to vote in line with their party policy and to back Tim Yeo's 'Green Jobs Amendment' for a clean power target.  Together with around ten Conservative MPs they can win a vote to ensure the Energy Bill tackles climate change and delivers thousands of new green jobs. 
 
Below are the Liberal Democrat and Conservative MPs that have so far added their support.  As they join in support, we will add their photos to this gallery.
