At the ADBA National Conference in Westminster on 3rd December, Chris Huhne, former Secretary of State for Energy said the following;
‘Let’s knock on the head the idea that the UK is going further or faster than our European neighbours on renewables, this is simply not true. Of all the major Member States the UK has the lowest renewable energy target. But it is fundamentally wrong to say we shouldn’t be in the lead.
‘It is very important that green businesses stand up to be counted. If we don’t have green growth we won’t have any growth at all.’
Charlotte Morton ADBA chief executive also spoke at the conference;
‘I am delighted that Chris Huhne will be working with ADBA to help up develop the best strategic position for the AD industry. Chris obviously brings a wealth of experience from his time as Secretary of State for Energy, Shadow Secretary of State for the Environment and as an MEP.
‘Renewable energy support is clearly set to be a major issue in the run up to the next election, and indeed in Europe, and Chris’ help demonstrating the very significant value anaerobic digestion delivers will make a real difference.’
