Renewable UK

In the run-up to GE2015, RenewableUK wanted to understand the attitudes of the British public towards onshore wind, and how political parties’ stances on this issue could influence voting intention. To focus on the potential impact on the election, ComRes used a combined approach to survey not only 2,000 members of the British public, but also 1,000 British adults living in the 40 top battleground seats (the most marginal seats where Labour and the Conservatives were competing with each other to get their candidate elected).

The results of the survey showed that supporting wind farms was a vote winner for local election candidates, and that stopping the future development of onshore wind farms was likely to lose national political parties votes – both across the country and in key battleground seats.
