Caroline Flint: On this Government's watch the UK has slipped from third to thirteenth in the world for investment in green growth

Labour press release

Caroline Flint MP, Labour's Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary, responding to reports in the Guardian this evening that billions of pounds' worth of investment in Britain's energy infrastructure is on hold or uncertain because of concerns over the Government's commitment to wind energy, said:

"Wind power is crucial to increase our renewable energy generation and cut our carbon emissions. The UK should be a world leader in wind energy - it's our second largest source of renewable energy and we're the world's eighth largest producer.

"But on this Government's watch the UK has slipped from third to thirteenth in the world for investment in green growth, investment in wind power has fallen by 40%, and now there are warnings that future projects could be at risk too. Unless this Government gets a grip, it will be the public who pay the price through higher energy bills, as we become more reliant on volatile fossil fuel prices, and jobs and industries that could come to the UK get exported overseas."
