ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the British government's Renewable Energy Strategy. She mentions that meeting the country's electricity demand through renewable energy sources would help meet its legal commitment to the European Union to meet 15% of its entire energy usage from renewables. She points out that although energy efficiency investments often have paybacks of more than five years, the water industry is regulated in a five-year price-setting cycle.
