Wildlife and Energy
This position statement focuses on the principles Somerset Wildlife Trust believe our governments, authorities and developers should adopt when facilitating energy generation policy and projects, so that new development supports people and wildlife, and contributes to the transition to a low carbon, renewable energy focussed future. The document provides a brief introduction to the energy-related issues facing Somerset’s wildlife, and sets out the broad approaches Somerset Wildlife Trust will apply when dealing with local energy policy and development schemes.
This policy is based on the best available information and will be revised as necessary. Over time, all appropriate and relevant forms of energy generation will be covered by this document, so please do check back for updates.
