Support mounts for regional targets for renewable energy

Support is mounting in Britain for regional targets for renewable energy. This was one of the key findings of a recent review (page 43) by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). The government also appears to be moving in this direction. Before his replacement, former energy minister John Battle said he wanted to see development of renewable energy built into local authorities' regional development plans. More recently, a similar message emerged from a planning seminar in Durham hosted by the North Eastern Development Agency. The consensus among the group-which included planners, local authority councillors, the British Wind Energy Association, environmental bodies and DTI representatives-was in favour of regional targets. The group also advocated more stakeholders actively involved in setting local frameworks.
