An energy revolution is needed in Britain, Environment Secretary David Milliband will say today.
He is expected to use a speech in Birmingham to push the idea of making efficiency measures the main source of power companies’ profits.

With the world battling to reduce greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere, it makes no sense for generators’ profits to go up if they produce more emissions, he suggests.
