It is clear that more and more of the public want to see taxpayers’ money shifted away from oil and gas to support new renewable energy instead. A new survey of more than 2,000 UK adults, published today, shows that 63% of the public want fossil fuel spending redirected to low-carbon industries such as wind and solar power.
This comes on the back of another poll carried out last month by YouGov for RenewableUK, that found that 45% of the public would pick renewable energy as their first priority for green investment from the Government, five times more than the next most popular option.
The same poll also showed public attitudes to renewable energy are changing, with a third of people saying they have a more positive opinion of onshore wind than they did five years ago.
With support for renewable energy increasing amongst business, Government and in communities, now is a great time to be investing in renewable energy. With Eco2’s experience across a wide range of renewables technologies, we are ready to support any renewable energy project, as an asset manager or as a developer for hire, or both.
