Public support for renewable energy in the UK remains strong, according to government figures.
DECC’s latest tracking survey reveals 75% of people back the use of green power.
Although those expressing strong support is lower than previous surveys at 24% – down from 33% – opposition for renewables is very low at 4%, with only 1% strongly opposed to it.
The news follows the government’s announcement to scrap subsidies for onshore wind and reduce support for solar and biomass projects.
