Many of you have written to me about the importance of a comprehensive community energy strategy by the government. Local and community-owned renewable energy supply can play a major role in meeting our climate change targets. However today, there are many challenges to producing energy at the local level.

I was disappointed that the government did not support the Local Electricity Bill, a bill I felt would have made a significant positive impact on the future of local energy in the country.

I wrote to the Secretary of State, at the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy raising these points, and urging him to harness the potential of community-based renewable energy schemes.

My letter is reproduced below.
