We support both on and offshore renewable energy schemes provided they have no impact on the surrounding environment and wildlife, or if the effects are minimised through appropriate siting, design, construction and operation. Where these conditions can't be met and there will be negative effects on protected habitats and species, we will object to a scheme.
