31 Jul Kamran’s View On Green Energy
We, the Liberal Democrats have always championed green energy and in government, we oversaw the trebling of renewable electricity generation. But the Conservatives have repeatedly cut support for green energy producers, damaging the environment and costing British jobs.
Our plan includes expanding renewable energy, reducing carbon emissions, cutting dependence on fossil fuel imports and generating more jobs and prosperity.
In order to do so, we will pass a Zero Carbon Britain Act, (to ensure that we reduce net greenhouse gas emissions by 80%), set up a British Housing and Infrastructure Development Bank (to mobilise investment into the low carbon and sustainable infrastructure the UK needs to remain competitive), support the Paris agreement (by ensuring the UK meets its own climate commitments and plays a leadership role in international efforts to combat climate change) and expand renewable energy.
