Agree I am all for a greater use of renewable energy; homes could be built to higher standards to both conserve energy and produce energy with the technology which is now available and will be available as we approach 2030.

These are the only renewable and low carbon energy generation methods mentioned in the text. CPRE is pleased to see th

Best practice is to secure locally sourced renewable energy and given the large number of woodlands in the area there is huge potential for wood fuel to contribute to achieving renewable energy targets. There would
