IEA Energy Analyst Andy Mayer has been quoted by the Telegraph in their article discussing why Britain should foster growth in fracking, nuclear, and wind power.

Andy wrote:

“Planning reform is the secret sauce to stimulating a UK economic recovery. Making it easier to build one type of energy infrastructure is a welcome step in the right direction, but there is much more to be done. 

“Making it easier to build nuclear, fracking, solar, geothermal, and tidal infrastructure would be even better. Then letting them compete to provide secure energy would provide meaningful relief from high energy bills.”
