The UK must invest more in nuclear and clean coal energy and put less emphasis on wind power if it wants a secure low-carbon future, business leaders say.

The CBI says government energy policy is "disjointed(脱节的,杂乱的)" and it is urging a "more balanced" energy mix.

The current approach means the UK might miss climate change targets, it added.

The government said putting in place a balanced mix of renewables, new nuclear and cleaner fossil fuels was at the heart of its energy policy.

But the CBI is calling for more action.

"The government's disjointed approach is deterring1 the private sector2 investment needed to get our energy system up to scratch(合格,处于良好状态), bolster3(支持) security and cut emissions," said CBI deputy director general John Cridland.

"While we have generous subsidies4(补助金,津贴) for wind power, we urgently need the national planning statements needed to build new nuclear plants.

"If we carry on like this we will end up putting too many of our energy eggs in one basket."

A spokesman for the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) said: "We know that big investments need certainty, and we're on track with our promise to remove costly5 unnecessary barriers to new nuclear, such as the planning reforms already in train."
