Producing energy from renewable sources will only ever be part of the solution to the environmental problems caused by energy production. There must also be better energy efficiency through improved insulation and other measures to reduce overall demand for energy. Energy efficiency, like renewable energy production, can have economic and employment benefits, particularly for 'fuel poor' households (as 30% of households on the lowest incomes live in the country's least efficient housing), and by creating training and jobs for local people in energy surveys, insulation and other improvement work.
