Today, the Institute for Public Policy Research publishes its report ‘Beyond the bluster: the effectiveness of wind power technology’ . Gaynor Hartnell, Chief Executive of the REA , comments:
“We welcome this report. It clearly explains how wind is being effectively incorporated into our power system and debunks familiar myths about this cost-effective technology.
“We need to move on to a better level of public discussion about wind energy in the UK. Politicians and policy must stick to a rational approach; opponents should be honest in their motivations and not dress them up in spurious arguments; and wind energy proponents must accept that some people think wind turbines are a blot on the landscape, and they are perfectly entitled to hold that opinion.”
The Renewable Energy Association represents renewable energy producers and promotes the use of all forms of renewable energy in the UK across power, heat, transport and renewable gas. It is the largest renewable trade association in the UK, with over 900 members, ranging from major multinationals to sole traders. For more information, see: www.r-e-a.net
