Power generation will be a major issue facing the UK in the coming decade. The next government will have to put to get an effective and environmentally sound policy to deal with increasing generation capacity. We believe that the focus should be on renewable energy (such as offshore wind and tidal power generation) as well as investigating and developing new technologies, including nuclear, and continuing to improve the effectiveness of existing ones.
- The Renewables Obligation would be continued (a subsidy to large electricity generators)
- The Feed-in Tariff would be continued (a subsidy for smaller generators)
