CLA Renewable Energy Policy
The CLA has been lobbying to influence the UK’s renewable strategy since 1999.
CLA members own or manage half of the land in England and Wales and many provide the space and raw materials needed to help achieve the Government renewable targets. At the same time renewables are an important factor in reducing the greenhouse gas emissions from farming and rural business. CLA helped draft and supports the Greenhouse Action Plan for Agriculture.
We have consistently called on Government to recognise the role of the countryside in delivery of renewable energy, and questioned the emphasis given to renewable electricity: CLA has been leading (and winning) the debate on Renewable Heat.
