The Great Energy Debate

What is the future of power generation? Nuclear? Gas? Wind? Renewables? Come along, hear the arguments and have your say.

Why does the debate over how we should generate our power continue to divide opinion? The EU has set a target for renewable energy of 22 per cent by 2010 but moves to build wind farms continue to meet opposition in the UK. Germany is already the world's largest wind power producer but the news that the German parliament has approved plans to double the country’s 15000 turbines over the next 16 years has been met with angry protests. Increasingly there is a push, even from noted environmentalists, to expand the use of nuclear power to help meet targets for reducing greenhouse gas emmissions. So what is the future of power generation? Come along, hear the arguments and have your say.
