Dr David Clubb, director of RenewableUK Cymru says support for all types of renewable energy, including onshore wind farms, is evident from today's poll, but Wales is still lagging behind other countries in the UK and Europe.
For the second consecutive year, the people of Wales have strongly confirmed their support for renewable energy across all technology types - including onshore wind.
I believe the benefits of renewable energy, including generating clean energy, ought to be spread far and wide across Wales.
Wales is blessed with a phenomenal renewable energy resource, but we still lag behind Scotland, as well as many of our European neighbours. We will continue to make the case, and to support the businesses that are a vital part in the transition to a clean, green, responsible future.
The developer RES says it is "disappointed" by Powys County Council's rejection of its plans to build a wind farm at Garreg Lwyd Hill in Radnorshire.
It said the wind farm would have provided a "safe, secure and low-carbon source of electricity" and "brought benefits to the local community."
We are deeply disappointed by the decision today. We felt that the evidence we had presented in the original application and supplementary reports clearly demonstrated that the wind farm would have no significant effects on local people, the local environment or local wildlife. In addition, the wind farm was proposed for a site lying entirely within an area designated for renewable energy development.
The vast majority of people now accept that fossil fuels are running out. The UK already imports more than 50 per cent of its gas from other countries, leaving us increasingly vulnerable to global political and financial fluctuations. It is very difficult to understand why the council would reject an environmentally friendly and beneficial energy-generating scheme like this wind farm.
Powys County Council should explain how it intends to fulfil its responsibilities to secure a reliable and sustainable energy supply, if high quality and benign projects like Garreg Lwyd Wind Farm are turned down.
Powys County Council has refused plans for a wind farm near Llanbadarn Fynydd, in Radnorshire.
Developer RES says the Garreg Lwyd Hill Wind Farm proposal consists of 23 turbines, at a maximum height of 126.5m, which would generate enough electricity to power more than half of the homes in Powys.
It is located within an area designated by the Welsh Government for renewable energy development.
Members of the authority's planning committee have unanimously voted to refuse consent to the application today.
