Kent Green Party delighted by the news that EoN is abandoning its proposed new coal fired power station for Kingsnorth in Kent, 20th October [3] "This is an important first step towards getting the carbon out of the UK's energy future. Reducing energy demand through efficiency, and investing in microgeneration for homes, offices, schools and hospitals must be coupled with larger scale renewable energy projects like the London Array Wind Farm. We can meet our energy needs by being a lot more efficient in our use of energy, and making use of a variety of renewable energy technologies." Steve Dawe. topic, place
