Monitors all round!

Interesting developments on the policy front, which we were asked to comment on in a follow-up article by the BBCs' Mark Kinver (which you can read here).

The Labour Party has announced new plans to provide 'real-time electricity monitors' to all households who request one. Electricity suppliers will be required to provide the displays free of charge to all households. According to Labour 'the plan could cut UK carbon dioxide emissions by 400,000 tonnes a year by 2010, equivalent to taking about 100,000 cars off the road.'

We'll be keeping an eye on how this one pans out...
