It would be helpful to look at this in the context of decentralised energy.
Vast quantities of energy are lost in transmission from centralised power stations.
Water source heat pump technology installed in the Thames next to Battersea Power station would supply 75.000 homes with heat and power with a saving of 50% on low carbon energy bills.
It would be the same in areas where it is used in lakes and waterways.
It is estimated that over a million homes could be supplied in this way. Where there isn't water there is solar and wind.
There is also tidal energy which is not dependant on the weather. The tide goes in and out twice a day whatever the weather.
An appropriate mix of all the renewable technologies would mean that everyone could benefit.
Solar has become cheaper because of demand and advancing technology. Take away FiTs and it becomes more expensive.
Even Lord Browne has admitted that future energy is in renewables.
Big businesses go where the money is and then will stop at nothing to keep their hands on it. If there are tax breaks for fracking that's what they will do. Barclays Bank owns Third Energy for fracking. There's nothing moral about it. It's just greed. As with the oil company's and Heathrow.
