The Dods Renewable Energy Dialogue is bringing together a group of organisations including DONG Energy, RenewableUK and Vestas with the political community to debate the economic viability of renewable, and specifically wind energy, as a legitimate and sustainable alternative to fossil-fuel based supplies.
Specifically, the programme will examine the declining costs of generating wind energy and the extent to which this makes it not just an environmentally-friendly option but reasonably priced for consumers. They will also examine the impact of wind energy to the wider economy -the way in which it can inspire a booming green energy sector and create demand for green skills in the UK economy.
The programme will also explore the debate between the political parties over how much public subsidy wind energy should attract.
Analysis and findings from the programme will be produced in a final report to be published in early 2013.
