Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

Don't subsidise nuclear power
Don't Subsidise Nuclear Power
The government plans to force everybody to pay for new nuclear power stations through their electricity bills, despite promising there would be no public subsidies.
Proposed changes to the electricity market, currently going through parliament, will provide a series of direct and indirect subsidies to the nuclear industry. These include a guaranteed long term price for the electricity produced by new nuclear plants.
Don't let the government throw good money after bad. Rather than increasing our bills to pay for the runaway costs of nuclear power, they should be supporting a clean, sustainable future based on renewable sources and energy saving.
Please send a letter [click here] to the government minister responsible for this policy - Ed Davey, Secretary of State for Climate Change – urging him to abandon all subsidies for nuclear and stick to his original commitment to a nuclear-free future.
