United Kingdom on the verge of an energy Renaissance

Friday, December 07, 2012
Speaking to reporters after he had addressed the House of Commons, said Davey had the Bill "industry and investors that, given what they need consensus and political security."

Previously, he told the Parliament that "the United Kingdom is open to investment in the energy sector".

"The energy bill is a transformation once-in-a-generation from our current market investments bring moving predominantly fossil fuels on a mixture of different CO2 production."

"The law will be the construction of a diverse mix of renewable energy, nuclear power, gas and CCS, protect our economy from energy deficits and clearly deliver new motor vehicle technology our current through the defiance as part of global efforts to combat climate change support."

He said the UK's energy problem "economic opportunity there for the taking." It will supply chains to promote and jobs in all parts of the country, drawing on our technical capabilities and our natural resources, bonding to support Britain's place at the forefront of the development of clean energy."

Some aspects of the heading of the law in the past week the most notable is released, that a carbon emissions target for 2030 would not included - this delayed until 2016 - and would allow for a toll which utilities, ?7 billion by 2020--customers tariffs for low-carbon investments go to increase.

This investment with low CO2 emissions should capture renewable energy and nuclear power, but given the fact that no new nuclear power stations are likely to be online before 2020, was today asked Davey, whether before that most if not all - go this money in renewable energy, especially wind. "Wind gets a lot of it," was his reply.

A key Board of the invoice is called contracts for difference, a long-term agreement between the failure of the other party Government in life and makes company a sum - or base price - guaranteed for electricity. Davey said the exercise price for nuclear-based project, decided with the first project would be to build that the EDF/Centrica Consortium wants that at Hinkley Point in England.

He also said that a decision on the further procedure for shale gas in the UK in the autumn statement Chancellor George Osborne would be revealed next week.

Davey said in addition to his ministers Greg Barker and John Hayes, who was recently nominated to replace Charles Hendry. Conservative MP Hayes sparked fury between green groups and stories of a rift with Liberal Democrat Davey when he was quoted as follows: "enough is enough" for onshore wind in the UK.

This afternoon, said Davey that "Men had differences" still "a possibility that our views had found". He said this "Was legal certainty for investors" and added: "I am, to have John on the team."

When Hayes "Name an onshore wind farm, that you approve" was pressed by a journalist, he instead affirmed Davey of quality assurance, that they worked well together.

As well as the contracts for difference, the formation of the opposing party the most important reforms in the electricity market in the Bill:

A market capacity to enable the capacity auctions as of 2014 for the provision of capacity in winter 2018/19; British company transmission and national grid should be named, to labour market reforms including CfDs electricity supply, manage the market capacity and analysis and evidence to the Government;Enable a final investment decision (FID) enable process allows investment in CO2 projects to submit for early projects, protection against delays to invest in our energy infrastructure-Davey today that there was already much interest in this, with the only company DRAX for a biomass project unmasked;Transitional measures may have to choose renewable investors, between the new system and the existing renewable energy most fossil power plants pollute obligation which remain stable up to 2017.An performance standard (EPS) emissions, to ensure that any new coal-fired power plants have CCS is equipped to be able to operate within the brakes.The Government has already legislated to a minimum carbon price out to establish April 2013.
The Bill is expected to received in 2013 Royal assent.
