MICROGENERATION INDUSTRY THANKS
LYNNE JONES MP FOR SUPPORTING THE CLIMATE CHANGE AND SUSTAINABLE ENERGY BILL
The Micropower Council, which
represents the microgeneration industry, has today written thanking local MP Lynne Jones
for supporting the Climate Change and Sustainable Energy bill in Parliament on 11th
November. The Bill will
- Reduce climate change and alleviate fuel poverty by promoting microgeneration
- Require the setting of targets for microgeneration
- Require a fiscal strategy to assist microgeneration
- Overcome bureaucratic hurdles and enable householders who install
microgeneration equipment to gain extra income from access to green energy certificates.
Dave Sowden, the Chief Executive of the Micropower Council said: Microgeneration, the generation of heat and
electricity by individual householders, has a great potential to lower fuel bills, help
deal with climate change, ensure security of energy supplies and help deal with cold homes
and fuel poverty. It also engages households and others more actively in the way in which
they use energy in their daily lives.
But it needs an initial
boost to ensure that these gains are realised. On
11th November your local MP Lynne Jones turned words into action and turned up
in Parliament to ensure that the Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill received a
second reading. The industry extends its thanks, and pledges to work as hard as necessary
to ensure that the Bill now becomes law.
Lynne Jones MP said: Microgeneration is a way in which we can
all help deal with major problems that often seem too big for individual action. By promoting small scale generation of heat and
power this Bill will make a significant contribution to our energy needs so I will do all
I can to help it progress through parliament.
