Government at Risk of Failing to meet own Carbon Reduction Targets

Ahead of the major climate change conference in Paris, the government is facing criticism from its own climate change advisor for its policy of cutting subsidies to solar and wind power projects.;

John Gummer (Lord Deben), in his  capacity as chairman of the UK's independent committee on climate change has voiced his concerns that the UK are currently languishing at the bottom of the league table of EU countries exploiting renewable sources of power. Currently, only Malta, Luxembourg and the Netherlands get less energy than the UK from renewables. 

The most recent figures show that the UK only achieves 5.1% of its energy from renewable sources and the concern is that the UK will fail to reach its own 15% target by 2020. Mr Gummer has also expressed dismay at the amount of energy being lost to households through inadequate or non-existent insulation.
