Our Tory government continues to pay scant attention to sources of locally produced, renewable energy and it is content to see our needs being met by energy companies largely based abroad.
Under the next Labour government renewables will benefit from funds from The National Investment Bank and private UK industry. Profits from renewable energy companies, under a Labour government, will benefit our citizens, not foreign companies - or foreign citizens where those companies are part state owned.
Labour will harness the talents of our scientists and environmentalists to ensure a safer, more secure supply of energy for Britain.
