British Look to Renewable Energy Sources (JUNE 1999)

Item #d99jun40

On Apr. 1, 1999, Bridge News reported that Britain’s Department of Trade & Industry has committed itself to supply 10% of the United Kingdom’s electricity by renewable resources by 2010. The Department expects to accomplish this goal by requiring public electricity suppliers to contract for a defined amount of electricity from renewable sources. The story also notes that about 40% of previous renewable-energy projects (mostly wind-power ventures) have failed because of opposition from local communities; projects to extract energy from waste and landfills are on the increase, however.
