The UK government department of energy and climate change published their latest energy securities survey last week, detailing the attitudes of 2,100 UK citizens on various aspects of energy supply.
Some of the most interesting results come from attitudes to renewable energy – it seems like the general public in the UK are very enthusiastic about energy from renewable sources, with 77% of respondents favouring renewable sources to provide our electricity, fuel and heat.
As for which sources are most favoured, solar led the way with 82%, off shore wind 73% and wave and tidal at 72%. Onshore wind power had the highest levels of opposition, although only 12% were against this form of power.
