When we use energy, a greenhouse gas called carbon dioxide (CO2) is released. We want to reduce CO2 emissions in Wales. So, we are looking to produce more of our energy from renewable and low carbon energy sources.
Renewable technologies use the energy of wind, tides, waves, plant material, vegetation, or farming waste as a fuel or energy source.
Our energy policy, Energy Wales: A Low Carbon Transition, sets out how Wales will move from fossil fuel based energy generation to utilise a wider mix of energy sources, which are mainly renewable or low in carbon.
Other low carbon energy sources
Gas will be an important fuel to help Wales towards a low carbon future. It is a fossil fuel, but it releases less CO2 than oil or coal, but we can’t rely on gas until technology is developed to capture and store the carbon that gas releases and stop it entering the atmosphere.
Nuclear is also a low carbon technology.
