We need more #windfarms to power electric cars, says David #Cameron


The Prime Minister defended the Government’s renewable energy policy by suggesting that the country needed more wind farms to create electricity to power electric vehicles, which will replace petrol powered cars.

The Government’s policy over windfarms suffered a jolt last week after a Conservative energy minister admitted that many people had had “enough” of large wind farms being sited near rural communities.

Speaking to students in the United Arab Emirates, Mr Cameron justified the Coalition's policy - which is deeply unpopular among some Tory backbenchers - by insisting that the UK needed more capacity to power people's cars as electric vehicles replaced petrol powered ones in the future.

He said: “All countries have to understand that as we move to electric vehicles from petrol vehicles we are going to see a big increase in electricity demand.
