The new government has confirmed it will maintain, or even increase, the ambitious national renewable energy targets. This is seen as central to the security of our energy supplies, essential for reducing carbon emissions, and the foundation of a low-carbon economy. The south west has excellent renewable energy resources and public and private sector commitment, which will enable it to take a leading role in renewable energy and the opportunities it offers. Regen SW’s annual survey is designed to track progress in the south west against these ambitions.

The projects in this survey show what can be achieved – we look forward to working with partners to build on this base to make 2010/11 a breakthrough year for sustainable energy in the south west.
