Why is David Cameron's "Greenest Government Ever" turning away from investment in renewable infrastructure? Especially after Paris last year. We were doing quite well there for a while.

Did they make too many promises to their fossil fuel friends in the fracking industry? 


There's something strange going on here.

There's a broad mix of opposition politicians, energy companies and green groups asking the same questions.

Last July, the UK government started to roll back support for renewable energy, citing forecasts of cost overruns and the need to keep down household bills.

New projections showed the Levy Control Framework (LCF) cap for low-carbon support would be breached, the government said. Yet it has never published the details of its updated calculations, despite the multi-billion pound implications for the direction of UK energy investment.
