As Minister for Energy and Climate Change, Mr. Hendry has stated that decisions being made now on how much and what type of energy is needed will affect the UK for the next few decades, and that is why he believes it is so important to strike the right balance between creating clean energy from renewable sources and nuclear and using current energy sources in a green fashion.
The Minster’s address at the Energy Insight Conference will touch on topics such as Electricity Market Reform, the CRC energy efficiency scheme, the Green Deal and he will discuss what he believes will be the required energy mix to address the UK’s future energy gap and secure energy supply.
