Stop importing so much energy and back domestic renewable energy production

This petition had 1,791 supporters


In 2013 our net energy import dependency (the amount we import minus what we export) was at its highest level since 1975 at nearly 50%. That means we're having to import our fuel from places like Russia. North sea oil and gas is running out, so we'll be more dependent on imported fuel unless we develop our domestic energy sources like wind power. Wind power already provides enough power for over 6 million homes per year, and is responsible for 34500 jobs. We urge the Prime Minister to back developing more clean UK energy sources like wind so we're not at the whim of other countries to keep the lights on.
