Green energy in Parliament

The Secretary of State (Energy and Climate Change) announced the annual
energy statement. Features of the statement included:

* The green deal - to be driven by entrepreneurs, the private sector,
local communities, individuals, businesses, scientists and engineers -
not by government. The green deal will reform finance for improving the
energy efficiency of Britain's homes.
* A comprehensive review of the electricity market - a consultation
document will be issued in the autumn.
* A commitment that new nuclear energy can go ahead so long as there is
no public subsidy.
* A commitment to overcome the challenges in harnessing renewable energy
resources.
* That the government will consult on a new microgeneration strategy.
The Secretary of State also laid an order to allow local authorities to
sell renewable electricity to the grid.

the route to achieving zero-carbon homes by 2016. He confirmed the:

regulations. The Minister noted that the government recognises the
challenges posed by the 70 per cent level previously proposed, adding
that the case for this will to be re-examined by the Zero-Carbon Hub to
