Renewable Energy - Who should be in control?
When it comes to renewable energy who should be in control? Currently in the UK the renewable energy markets and the energy reduction campaigns are majority controlled by power companies. Power companies recieve millions of pounts in investment every year to promote renewable energy and the energy reduction products and services.
The question im asking is this, If a power company makes money from selling electricity why would the encourrage people to use less when they would make less profit. A power companies best interest is selling as much electricity to as many people as possible because they have shareholders and investors to please. If the renewable energy market and energy reduction is to improve surly we need someone else with different intrests promoting this?
Please leave your comments as i believe there are some interesting topics which need to be openly discussed to enable further movement in the field of renewable energy and its development.
