the future of gas in the UK

Gas is sometimes seen as a bridging fuel between dirty coal and a low carbon future. But is that really true for the UK, and what future does it have in our energy mix? How much gas can we permit ourselves to use and still meet emission targets? And how damaging was the Chancellor’s withdrawal of support for carbon capture and storage?

A new report from the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) examines the future of gas in the UK, and some of the authors came to the SMC to speak to journalists.

 

Speakers:

Prof. Jim Watson, Director of UKERC and Professor of Energy Policy at SPRU, University of Sussex

Prof. Mike Bradshaw, Professor of Global Energy at Warwick Business School

Steve Pye, Senior Research Associate at UCL’s Energy Institute
