Solar 'Rooftop Revolution' Westminster Hall debate

You can read my opening speech below.

It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Mr Sharma. I am glad to have secured this debate about solar rooftop installations. Monday’s report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change left us in no doubt about the urgency of tackling the accelerating climate emergency, and one of the fastest, most effective ways of doing so here in the UK is to step up plans to decarbonise our housing stock. In this short debate, I want to focus on rooftop solar in particular.

Power up local communities to hit climate targets, urges Green New Deal report

Powering up local communities with cleaner community energy, local food supplies and strengthened public transport networks is essential if the UK is to hit its 2030 climate targets, according to a new report by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on a Green New Deal, co-chaired by Green MP Caroline Lucas and Labour MP Clive Lewis. 

Response to the Energy Security Strategy

Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP for Brighton Pavilion, has the following response to the launch of the Government’s Energy Security Strategy, out today: 


“This feels like we’re taking one very small step forward and several giant leaps back. This economically and environmentally illiterate Strategy proposes new North Sea oil & gas fields which do absolutely nothing to lower household bills, a review to lift the ban on climate-wrecking fracking, and a swathe of painfully slow to construct and vastly expensive nuclear reactors.

Letter to the Chancellor on Public Sector Net Investment

Dear Chancellor, 

We are writing to you ahead of next week’s Spring Statement to urge you to amend the 3% cap on Public Sector Net Investment (PSNI) included in the Charter for Budget Responsibility introduced to the House in the Autumn, and to introduce a windfall tax on the excess profits of oil and gas companies to both help struggling households and advance the transition to a zero emissions economy.
