Britain, moreover – as Government reports show – has the best renewable resources in Europe, not so much in solar power admittedly, but in wave, tidal and (particularly offshore) wind power. But instead of exploiting this natural competitive advantage, it has – under successive governments– been near the bottom of the European league for exploiting them.
A resource is something you can exploit and make a profit from. Given that these energy forms are more expensive than others they are not a resource are they? Nor, of course, a competitive advantage.
