Informal but Informative – your guide to issues around the UK and global clean energy transition
 
In this episode…
 

Fracking has, at least for the moment, ground to a halt here in the UK. For a variety of reasons from earthquakes to election politics, the government has decided to withdraw its support from the nascent industry. Remember though, that natural gas accounts for over 40% of UK electricity generation and the vast majority of its heat supply.

So in this episode we discuss the background to this change of policy, plus the implications it has for the UK market – not least the opportunities for alternatives which could replace natural gas in the energy mix. It’s a discussion that touches on a wide variety of issues, from stakeholder engagement and project planning to geopolitics, trade deals, renewable power and alternative gases.

Enjoy… and feel free to get in touch with any comments or suggestions for our future discussions.
