How to Check the Health of the UK Electricity Supply Sector
The Economic Research Council has commissioned a report from John Constable (Director of the Renewable Energy Foundation), which highlights the key issues surrounding the UK’s current energy policy. The UK’s energy policy over the last two decades has been a disaster, and recent developments have only papered over the cracks. The only long-term solution is to increase base load supply with sustainable and reliable electricity generation.
