BBC Radio airs an unprecedented critique of the UK government’s undermining of renewables

A personal view of the File on 4 programme:

I found it powerful and accurate, in particular because it used a wide range of interviewees across the full span of renewables industries devastated by the long-running strategy of the civil service to hold us back in favour of nuclear and shale gas, which has found full expression in this current government.

I found it very sad that energy minister Claire Perry said she is talking to, and listening to, the solar industry. Well not in the case of Solarcentury, currently the fastest-growing UK-based international solar player.

I have sent a tweet asking her and her department how many times they have met representatives of the nuclear industry and the shale frackers.
