Educational Tour Finds Support for Renewable Energy

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Representatives from the UK’s Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) hosted an education tour that traveled across the North West of England to promote the understanding of renewable energy. The tour featured an eco-friendly educational vehicle with information, green give-aways and interactive displays. Carbon emissions produced by the tour are being offset with a donation to plant trees in the Mersey Forest and Greater Manchester’s Red Rose Forest. At each stop of the tour, the DTI took a poll to determine how much people in the North West know about renewable energy technologies and how much they support the development of such technologies. Eight in every ten repondents expressed support for the expansion of electricity generation from renewable sources, according to the poll. Asked how likely they would be to support the production of more of the UK’s electricity from renewables, such as solar, wind, tidal and wave power, 81 percent responded “Very” or “Quite” likely.
