Renewable energy offers best value for money, says scientific advisor
Chief scientific advisor to the Department of Energy and Climate Change David MacKay recently warned that relying on fossil fuel imports would result in higher costs compared to renewables. He claimed that continuing to rely on fossil fuels could cost £4,682 per person annual and result in the country missing its carbon reduction targets, whereas developing renewable energy could reduce this bill by £84 per person per year in the UK. The least cost scenario envisages 42% of the UK's electricity coming from renewables sources. Director of external affairs at RenewableUK Jennifer Webber said this is a clear reminder that "doing nothing is not an option" and the country cannot go on relying on high-carbon sources of energy.
