There is a wide level of public support for sustainable cheap energy sources such as wind power, an expert has said.
Nick Medic, head of communications at RenewableUK, stressed that a number of public opinion polls consistently show high levels of support for wind energy.
He highlighted both independent and government polls which demonstrate that up to 80 per cent of people in Britain support the deployment of wind energy.
"Each year the government does a polling study," Mr Medic said. "The 2009 figures showed 75 per cent of people polled support renewable energy, which was basically unchanged since 2008."
He added that there needs to be a bigger awareness campaign launched highlighted the benefits of Feed-in Tariffs and the ways in which they simplify the benefits of renewable cheap energy.
A recent study from Cardiff University found that public support for the construction of renewable energy from wind is very high, while coal-fired and nuclear power are met with far less enthusiasm.
