Alistair McGowan, impressionist, environmentalist and solar power advocate, joins the ‘We Support Solar’ campaign in calling on the UK Government to commit to solar power as part of the country’s renewable energy future.
At present, solar power in the UK faces an uncertain future as the Government has announced a review of the Feed-in tariff. The issue of unceratinty for communities and businesses is articulated by: Jonathan Porritt, The Forum for The Future , Caroline Lucas, Leader of the Green Party and Shadow Energy Minister, Huw Irranca Davies in The Guardian.
Greenpeace International and The European Photovoltaic Industry Association research shows solar PV could supply over 20% of the world’s power by 2050. Dr Doug Parr, Chief Scientist at Greenpeace UK said:
“It makes no sense for Government to choose to marginalise a major global power source growth industry. We need more solar ambition to deliver green growth, and the UK jobs and industry that will go with it.”
Solar is a remarkable creature.
It is the fastest growing electricity generating technology in the world.
Stop the UK Government turning solar into an endangered species.
