Tories Pledge Energy “Revolution”‘

[BBC News] Shadow environment secretary Peter Ainsworth accused the government of “tinkering at the edges” of the issue.  Tory plans include a power station waste levy to help capture and use heat that would otherwise go up in the air. Households that switch to renewable energy would be allowed to sell excess energy back to the national grid. Subsidies for on-shore wind farms would be adjusted to ensure competitive tariffs for emerging renewable technologies, Mr Ainsworth said.  He told the party’s conference in Blackpool: “The next Conservative government will begin a revolution in the way that our energy is generated and supplied. Our aim is to create real incentives to drive the market.”
