Don’t let the NIMBYs win: Onshore wind is essential to UK’s energy future

Simon Clarke has fired a warning shot at the government, urging them not to water down proposals to ease planning laws for onshore wind developments amid industry concerns the reforms will not do enough to boost the declining industry.
