New UK Energy Minister Reaffirms Support for Renewable Energy
Speaking at the All-Energy conference in Aberdeen, Wicks said there was "no doubt" of the government's determination to push ahead on renewables. Accepting most of the recommendations from the Sustainable Development Commission's report last week (see related story) he went on to announce:
"The Sustainable Development Commission last week reiterated the terrific potential of wind power. Our decision to give the go-ahead for Scout Mor was taken after extensive and thorough consideration of the representations I received, both for and against consent being granted," he said. "The independent public inquiry ensured that community and environmental concerns were heard. Approval takes into account the concerns raised and includes a number of conditions recommended by the inquiry Inspector to mitigate any impacts."
