‘Limited role’ for natural gas in UK future energy mix

The use of natural gas for electricity generation in the UK may have to decline significantly over the next 30 years, according to a new study. Without carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology, gas-fired electricity would have to fall to 10% of the mix to meet emissions targets for 2050. The new study also warns that current government policies will deter investment in gas.

Last November the government signalled that the UK’s remaining coal-fired power stations would be phased out by 2025. The report has been published by the UK Energy Research Centre. The authors calculate that without carbon capture and storage technology, unabated gas could only make up 10% of the electricity mix in 2050, if the government wanted to meet current legal obligations to restrict carbon. Legislation on the statute books in the UK requires an 80% cut in CO2 emissions below the 1990 level by the middle of this century. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/

'No pushy salesmen here, just people who appeared honest and straightforward. I had quotes or visits from other companies, but found their sales people far too intimidating. All work completely neatly and tidily on time and to agreed budget.  Could not ask for more.'

‘If you are looking for the installation of solar panels, then Redmile Energy are the people to approach! After a thorough survey of our home, they gave us three quotes then arranged a date for installation within three weeks, all of this at less than half the price of the “big boys” for exactly the same panels!'

Rev I Friars
'The survey was to a much higher level of service than we had seen from others. The survey was very thorough rather than the "the fitters would sort that out on the day" that we had from others. Communications were prompt and they carried out our installation quickly to make sure we beat a drop in the feed in tariff'
