Marine energy park welcomed - but still just a drop in the ocean

Welcoming the launch today (Monday 30 July 2012) of the Pentland Firth and Orkney Waters in the North of Scotland as a Marine Energy Park, Friends of the Earth Energy Campaigner Guy Shrubsole said:

"Renewable energy projects such as this are exactly what are needed to reduce the nation's reliance on dirty and increasingly expensive gas and create thousands of new jobs.

"This Marine Energy Park is just a splash in the ocean - the potential of clean British energy is enormous.

"But, the push to build a clean and affordable future is under threat from George Osborne's reckless drive for more gas-fired power stations.

"A new dash for gas will have a damaging impact on household fuel bills and UK climate targets - the Chancellor must be stopped."
