136: Renewable energy

This briefing was originally summarised from an article on the website of the Department for Trade and Industry which has been withdrawn. However, I have kept the briefing in the RuSource library as it gives a good objective view of the different types of renewable energy and the contribution each could make to the Government’s target of increasing the electricity we get from renewable sources from the current 4% to 10% by 2010. It covers biomass, geoenergy, hydroelectric, hydrogen fuel cells, solar, tidal, wave and wind power
