Watch Dale Vince at the House of Commons
Our founder, Dale Vince, recently spoke at the Environmental Audit Committee inquiry to give evidence on how to accelerate Britain’s transition from fossil fuels and secure its energy supplies.
In the House of Commons, committees – often with a mix of MPs from different parties – take a detailed look at important issues, including policy, proposed new laws and wider matters.
Dale covered a wide range of topics in response to questions from MPs on the committee, which includes Caroline Lucas from the Green Party. He tackled:
Why fossil fuels can’t give us energy security
Why nuclear is too slow and too costly, never mind the waste problem
How our cheapest, fastest and cleanest energy options – onshore wind and sun –are hamstrung by a hostile planning environment
Why we urgently need to tackle energy efficiency in Britain’s homes
Why heat pumps aren’t the answer to household heating
Why we need to end all forms of subsidy for fossil fuels
How we can supply all of Britain’s gas needs by making sustainable gas from grass.
A look back at WOMAD
We had a great time at this year’s WOMAD festival at the end of July, chatting with customers about our plans for the future, running great events on the Ecotricity Stage, and enjoying the music.

Ministry of Eco Education
Climate change is the biggest issue facing humanity and the importance of educating future generations on sustainability can’t be overstated, but doing this within the restrictions of the national curriculum is a huge challenge for overworked teachers.
