The Energy Secretary Ed Davey has released this statement following John Hayes' comments about onshore wind energy:
There has been no change to Government policy on renewable energy, as collectively agreed by the Coalition Cabinet ...
There are no targets - or caps - for individual renewable technologies such as onshore wind. Nor are there reviews being done of onshore wind on the basis of landscape or property values.
What we’re currently consulting on are ways of making sure local communities feel the benefit of hosting wind farms, and whether our understanding of future costs is accurate.
Onshore wind is one of the cheapest renewables, which is why we’ve been able to cut the subsidy. It has an important role to play in our energy future.
