Speaking at the Department of Energy and Climate Change's energy efficiency mission launch on Monday 4 February, Cameron said the UK needs to focus on being energy efficient so it will win in the "global race".

He said the "Green Deal" loan scheme launched in January, which has attracted criticism for high interest rates and upfront fees, would cut carbon emissions and bills, and create jobs.

Cameron added:

"Make no mistake, we are in a global race and the countries that succeed in that race, the economies in Europe that will prosper are those that are the greenest and the most energy-efficient. Energy consumption is set to grow by a third over the next two decades alone. And in a race for limited resources it is the energy-efficient that will win that race.

“It is the countries that prioritise green energy that will secure the biggest share of jobs and growth in a global low carbon sector set to be worth $4 trillion by 2015."

PM says UK must prioritise growth in green industries

The Prime Minister, David Cameron, has said that the UK must prioritise growth in "green industries" such as energy efficiency and renewable energy.

Speaking at the Department of Energy and Climate Change's energy efficiency mission launch on Monday 4 February, Cameron said the UK needs to focus on being energy efficient so it will win in the "global race".

He said the "Green Deal" loan scheme launched in January, which has attracted criticism for high interest rates and upfront fees, would cut carbon emissions and bills, and create jobs.
