Solarcentury's Jeremy Leggett is no stranger to stirring up the government, as can be seen from the interview we conducted here. Now he has joined the debate surrounding the Stern report. Not only has his company released its own provocative vision for the Houses of Parliament clad in solar cells, but they are also calling on government to significantly increase its support for solar and other renewables:
Sir Nicholas Stern's report is a very loud alarm wake up call to government to get serious about solar and other low carbon technologies. As we've been saying for several years, the time for a little policy tinkering here or a small grant programme there is now surely over.
Solarcentury's full responses can be found here and here. Whether Big Ben gets the Leggett makeover or not, it seems certain that calls for the government to fully support renewables will only get louder from here on in.
