Of the recommendations, 95 pct of climate assembly members backed the use of offshore wind technology to contribute towards the country's climate neutrality goal while 81 pct supported solar power and 78 pct onshore wind and 40 pct backed the use of bioenergy.
22 pct favored the continued use of fossil fuels combined with carbon capture and storage (CCS) which "only provides a short-term, expensive solution when better alternatives are available" according to 56 pct of the Climate Assembly members.
This contrasts with UK government support for the technologies. In March it pledged £800 million for CCS development, while in July it announced a £100 million investment in direct air carbon capture and storage (DACCS) R&D.
