Reacting to the Labour Party's announcement that Ed Miliband is the Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, RenewableUK's Deputy Chief Executive Melanie Onn said:
"Ed Miliband is a strong champion of renewables with a great track record of supporting the innovative technologies we need to get the UK to net zero as fast and as cheaply as possible.
“He's a fluent and passionate advocate for the need to act more swiftly on climate change, and a longstanding supporter of onshore wind as a crucial technology which generates clean electricity at the lowest cost for consumers.
“We're looking forward to working with him in his key role of scrutinising Government energy policy, as we continue to build vital infrastructure to power our future".
