A fascinating presentation by the Green Alliance about the economic value of deploying low carbon energy production, versus nuclear and gas. The need is clear for policy that supports low carbon power as it is now by far the best value option.
“Offshore wind can deliver almost half of the necessary new low carbon generation required in the 2020s at half the cost of existing plans.”
“The government can meet its carbon targets for the power sector without major investment in conventional nuclear plants beyond Hinkley Point C.”
