New energy minister wants balanced low-carbon system to meet energy challenges
On Wednesday 5 September John Hayes, the newly appointed energy minister, said the UK's best chance to "keep the lights on" will come through developing a "balanced" low-carbon energy mix. Speaking on his first day in the role, following the cabinet reshuffle in which he replaced Charles Hendry, Hayes argued it would be important for the UK not to be overly dependent on any single low-carbon technology. He added he was keen to co-operate with business to secure investment and pledged to work with parliamentary colleagues to ensure the coalition's forthcoming Energy Bill passed into law.
