WBritish members of parliament (MPs) are being urged to sign an Early Day Motion developed by the Parliamentary Renewable & Sustainable Energy Group (PRASEG) and the Sustainable Energy Roundtable. It was tabled by a cross-party group of MPs on February 11 and calls for 10% of UK electricity from renewables, 10 GW of combined heat and power and a 30% improvement in energy efficiency. "The purpose of the campaign is É to build a constituency of parliamentary support for sustainable energy policies," says PRASEG chair Frank Cook. "This sort of support will be crucially important if we are going to encourage the next government to make the level of commitment to promoting sustainable energy that will be necessary if the UK is to meet its environmental targets."
