Storm over Energy Targets; WIND POWER: Amount of Electricity Produced from Renewable Sources at Centre of Row


Byline: STEVE DUBE

THE split between environmentalists and conservationists over wind farms has led to a furious row over evidence presented to the National Assembly's energy review team.

Environmental campaigners Friends of the Earth Cymru condemned the efforts of the Campaign for the Preservation of Rural Wales to lower targets for the amount of electricity to be produced by renewable sources such as wind power by 2020.

After hearing the evidence the National Assembly's 12-strong economic development committee rejected the higher targets and called for alternative figures.

FoE Cymru energy spokesman Neil Crumpton said the conservation group opposed high targets because of its opposition to wind turbines.

"We are deeply shocked that CPRW are trying to drag down the renewable energy targets proposed by the Assembly's energy review team, " said Mr Crumpton.

He said the anti-wind farm campaign could now begin to damage the development of rural biomass energy schemes and other innovative technologies that could create jobs in industrial and rural communities.

Mr Crumpton said millions were threatened with floods, droughts and windstorms unless the world's industrialised countries reduced fossil-fuel emissions.

"Wales is in the international spotlight because of its world-leading sustainable development remit and its natural resources.

"We have a great opportunity and responsibility to be a global role model by setting high renewable energy targets as the review team suggests."

CPRW consultant Jeffrey Sinclair said the organisation had merely pointed out the targets were effectively twice as high as those set for the rest of the UK

- and that Wales already produced twice as much electricity as it needed.
