Renewable energy - Have your say

Have your say on renewable energy .  Kent County Council is taking an in-depth look at provision for renewable energy in the county over the next few months. 

During spring and early summer 2010 the council's Renewable Energy Select Committee will investigate the effect on Kent of current government and local policy. They will assess the pros and cons of various types of renewable energy technology, and the role it could play in providing us with a secure and affordable energy supply in the future. 

Renewable Energy Select Committee Chairman Keith Ferrin said: "This review will explore ways to support Kent's transition to a sustainable, low-carbon future. In particular, we will consider what the council can do through its own operations or influence to enhance Kent's role. We will also look at the benefits to residents and businesses from the development of renewable energy. In order to conduct the review we will be hearing from a number of experts, regulators, energy suppliers and consumers. We also want to find out what you think about energy efficiency, renewable energy – in fact, all matters energy!" 

Hearings are scheduled for early summer time, with a final report initially timetabled for the autumn. To make sure your views are heard email comments, concerns or questions to: renewable.energy@kent.gov.uk by 5 March 2010.
