Who knew the county council had a climate change champion? Well it does, and he ain’t happy.
Devon County Councillor Gordon Hook (said climate change champion) is disappointed by the government’s backtracking on the 20 per cent renewable energy target for 2020 (the new goal is 10-15 per cent).
Cllr Hook told the PRSD: ‘Renewables are the way forward for UK’s electricity supply and the Government must commit to real investment as a matter of the utmost urgency.Â Tomorrow could be too late. Devon and the south-west peninsula is well placed to exploit wind, wave, tide and sun.’
