New polling by YouGov, commissioned by RenewableUK, shows overwhelming public support for Government prioritising investment in renewable energy over all the other measures outlined by the Prime Minister in his Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution. When Boris Johnson announced his plan in November, he set out ten key areas to focus on, including advancing offshore wind, driving the growth of low carbon hydrogen, delivering new nuclear power, accelerating the shift to zero emission vehicles, green public transport, cycling and walking, ‘jet zero’ (green aviation) and green ships, greener buildings, investing in carbon capture and storage, protecting our natural environment, and green finance. YouGov asked a weighted sample of 1,700 people to rank these into their top five areas in which the Government should be investing. Five times as many people supported the prioritisation of renewable energy as their top choice than any other green industry.
