Davey’s Annual Energy Statement lacks real solutions

news release
31st Oct 2013

Responding to Energy Secretary Ed Davey’s Annual Energy Statement today (Thursday 31 October 2013) Friends of the Earth Energy Campaigner Sophie Neuburg said:  “Ed Davey is right, bills are soaring thanks to rising gas prices – but promoting easier switching is like rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic.

“The real solutions – massive investment in energy efficiency and a rapid switch to renewables – are conspicuous by their absence from Ministers’ plans.

“By siding with the big energy firms and blocking a clean power target, Davey has shown he is more dormouse than ‘tiger’ when it comes to fighting for the environment.”
