David Cameron describes renewable energy generation as "green crap"
26th November, 2013
Coming just days after the prime minister David Cameron allegedly described levies to boost renewable energy generation as "green crap", blaming RWE's decision to pull the plug on the UK's largest offshore wind farm on government indecision would be easy.
There's also the widespread questioning within the coalition of green subsidies that power companies argue are a major factor behind recent rises in energy bills.
Without the certainty of government support, companies are far less likely to commit the huge sums of money necessary to develop and build large-scale wind farms. This could of course affect the proposed Irish Sea developments by Dong Energy and Centrica which are a major threat to Isle of Man Ferry Routes.
