Lincolnshire is ideally placed to benefit from the green technologies required to combat climate change but it is vulnerable to the higher sea levels which
increasing ocean temperatures will cause.

We encourage measures to reduce energy consumption and will lead by establishing the highest possible standards of insulation and energy efficiency in all LCC buildings.

We welcome the increasing availability of LED light bulbs that are more efficient than existing low energy bulbs and produce no toxic waste.

We encourage small scale clean energy projects undertaken by individuals or communities and wind farm developments on appropriate sites.

We will ensure that communities affected by any major project will also benefit in some tangible way, such as by developer funded investment in community facilities, local infrastructure, such as roads and communications, or reductions in fuel or tax bills.

We welcome the development of the Humber as a centre for wind technology and a potential centre for wave and tidal technologies. We will provide appropriate education and training for those wishing to enter this new industry and will support local businesses which can supply it with goods and services.
