Britain way behind Europe in Sustainability

upower 45British population shows an overwhelming support for alternate energy; however, their actions do not seem to match their words! They stand 10 to 15 years behind much of Europe in living in a sustainable way.

A conference, Energy in Regional Development – Learning from European Best Practice, at Penryn, Cornwall, organised by the Cornwall Sustainable Energy Partnership brought into sharp focus as to how much Britain has been left behind.

Learning from European Best Practice’ brought together European speakers from iconic energy projects from Spain, Austria, Denmark, The Netherlands and Sweden. This conference focused on reality rather than aspirations on ways regions can achieve a low-carbon competitive economy.

Europe has gone sustainable largely. Fine example is of an island off Denmark which uses 100 per cent renewable energy and an Austrian new-town known as solar city after every property was built with a south facing facade to provide maximum solar energy.

However, it’s not all that late and Britain can still make sustainable efforts. People who want to help prevent climate change, must open their minds to projects like wind farms and solar cities.
