Cuts to funding of green energy

Government criticised on funding of green energy

Government claims that it is leading a green energy revolution were condemned after it emerged that funding for five prominent environmental initiatives had been cut by 25 per cent this year.

Details of funding for the organisations, which include the Energy Savings Trust (EST), the Waste and Resources Action programme (Wrap), the Carbon Trust, the National Industrial Symbiosis Programme (NISP) and Envirowise, surfaced in a parliamentary answer from Joan Ruddock, a junior minister at the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).

They show that the five organisations would receive £68 million less from the Government this year than they did during 2008, a drop of more than 25 per cent from £270 million to £202 million. The figures show funding for Envirowise, which offers businesses advice on reducing the waste they send to landfill, as well as on water and energy use, more than halved from £22 million to £9 million.

Each one of us has to make their own preparations, individually or in groups
