Government must support all renewables to hit EU targets

Calls for the Government to support all forms of renewable energy to meet EU energy targets has come from a House of Lords committee.The European Union Committee examined the challenges facing the UK in achieving 20% of energy from renewable sources by 2020. It said that the drive to meet the targets may lead to emerging renewable technologies being neglected and investment may not be aimed at the most cost effective renewable generation technologies over the long term.
