UK making unacceptably slow progress towards renewables

The BBC reported on how a committee of MPs have declared the UK is making “unacceptably slow” progress towards its renewable energy targets.

The Committee of Public Accounts has also warned of the UK missing renewables targets because it didn’t allow for the rejection of many wind farm applications.

It’s also criticised the way funding has been controlled for many renewable projects, claiming that some of the £180m allocated to support renewable projects had gone unspent.

It’s all a bit predictable to be honest and the sad fact is that with apparent miss-management of funds on one side and the large amount of wind farm applications that have been rejected, the UK still trails behind in the renewable energy stakes.

Personally I don’t care how but the message is clear – get your act together – quickly.
