Ed Davey moves to shield renewables amid reshuffle

From the BBC:

The Energy Secretary Ed Davey has moved to defend renewables after the appointment of two anti-wind ministers in the reshuffle.

The new Environment Secretary, Owen Paterson, and Energy Minister, John Hayes, both oppose wind farms.

The previous pro-renewables energy minister Charles Hendry was axed just as he prepared to help pilot the Energy Bill through the Commons.

The BBC understands Mr Davey will take personal control of renewables policy.
