Nuclear is the most popular choice to provide for Britain's future energy needs, a new public opinion survey by YouGov has found.
The survey, published on Sunday 10 February 2013, shows 26 per cent of people support nuclear energy, while 18 per cent support wind power, a further 18 per cent support wave/tidal power, and 16 per cent back solar.
Only 5 per cent support gas to provide for Britain's energy future, and 2 per cent favour coal.
Responding to the survey results, Nuclear Industry Association Chief Executive, Keith Parker said:
“These results are an overwhelming vote of confidence for low carbon energy.
“This is a clear mandate from the British public for the Government to maintain the momentum on creating a low carbon future, with reduced dependence on gas and coal.”
