Britons would like to see a balanced mix of shale gas and renewable energy, the chief executive of a trade body has said, after a survey found that a "majority" supported fracking.
This survey shows that most people across the country think that shale gas should be developed. More than four out of five of us heat our homes with gas, and Britain's shale resource gives us the opportunity to become less dependent on foreign energy supplies, create tens of thousands of jobs and support our manufacturing industries.
Whilst these results are positive, our industry needs to continue to do all it can to listen to and engage with the views of local communities.
